Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2006-2013 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.
The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
Evgeny Legerov discovered that GnuPG did not sufficiently check overly
large user ID packets. Specially crafted user IDs caused a buffer
overflow. By tricking an user or remote automated system into
processing a malicous GnuPG message, an attacker could exploit this to
crash GnuPG or possibly even execute arbitrary code.
Update the affected gnupg package.
