[slackware-security]  gnupg (SSA:2006-072-02)

New GnuPG packages are available for Slackware 9.0, 9.1, 10.0, 10.1, 10.2,
and -current to fix security issues.

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-2006-0455
  http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2006-0049


Here are the details from the Slackware 10.2 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gnupg-1.4.2.2-i486-1.tgz:  Upgraded to gnupg-1.4.2.2.
  There have been two security related issues reported recently with GnuPG.
  From the GnuPG 1.4.2.1 and 1.4.2.2 NEWS files:
    Noteworthy changes in version 1.4.2.2 (2006-03-08)
    * Files containing several signed messages are not allowed any
      longer as there is no clean way to report the status of such
      files back to the caller.  To partly revert to the old behaviour
      the new option --allow-multisig-verification may be used.
   Noteworthy changes in version 1.4.2.1 (2006-02-14)
    * Security fix for a verification weakness in gpgv.  Some input
      could lead to gpgv exiting with 0 even if the detached signature
      file did not carry any signature.  This is not as fatal as it
      might seem because the suggestion as always been not to rely on
      th exit code but to parse the --status-fd messages.  However it
      is likely that gpgv is used in that simplified way and thus we
      do this release.  Same problem with "gpg --verify" but nobody
      should have used this for signature verification without
      checking the status codes anyway.  Thanks to the taviso from
      Gentoo for reporting this problem.
  (* Security fix *)
