[slackware-security]  gnupg2 (SSA:2014-175-03)

New gnupg2 packages are available for Slackware 13.37, 14.0, 14.1,
and -current to fix a security issue.


Here are the details from the Slackware 14.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/gnupg2-2.0.24-i486-1_slack14.1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This release includes a security fix to stop a denial of service using
  garbled compressed data packets which can be used to put gpg into an
  infinite loop.
  For more information, see:
    http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2014-4617
