Description

Updated GnuPG packages are now available for Red Hat Linux 6.2, 7, and 7.1. These updates include fixes for the recently-discovered format string vulnerability.

Versions of GnuPG up to and including 1.0.5 include a format string vulnerability. In some cases, this can lead to compromise of an account being used to decrypt an encrypted file.
