Description

Updated GnuPG packages that fix a security issue is now available. This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

GnuPG is a utility for encrypting data and creating digital signatures. An integer overflow flaw was found in GnuPG. An attacker could create a carefully crafted message packet with a large length that could cause GnuPG to crash or possibly overwrite memory when opened. (CVE-2006-3746) All users of GnuPG are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
