[slackware-security]  gnupg (SSA:2007-066-01)

New gnupg packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
and 11.0 to fix security ramifications of incorrect gpg usage.

More details about this issue may be found in the Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database:

  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-1263

Here are the details from the Slackware 11.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
n/gnupg-1.4.7-i486-1_slack11.0.tgz:  Upgraded to gnupg-1.4.7.
  This fixes a security problem that can occur when GnuPG is used incorrectly.
  Newer versions attempt to prevent such misuse.
  For more information, see:
    http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-announce/2007q1/000251.html
  (* 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.
