[slackware-security]  gnupg (SSA:2006-215-01)

New GnuPG packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
and -current to fix security issues which could allow an attacker to
crash gnupg and possibly overwrite memory which could lead to an integer
overflow.


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gnupg-1.4.5-i486-1_slack10.2.tgz:
  Upgraded to gnupg-1.4.5.
  From the gnupg-1.4.5 NEWS file:
    * Fixed 2 more possible memory allocation attacks.  They are
    similar to the problem we fixed with 1.4.4.  This bug can easily
    be be exploited for a DoS; remote code execution is not entirely
    impossible.
(* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project!  :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
