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 the
validity of the comment and a control field. Specially crafted GPG
data could cause a buffer overflow. This could be exploited to execute
arbitrary code with the user's privileges if an attacker can trick an
user into processing a malicious encrypted/signed document with gnupg.
Update the affected gnupg package.
