Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gnupg (MDKSA-2003:061)

This script is Copyright (C) 2004-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

A bug was discovered in GnuPG versions 1.2.1 and earlier. When gpg
evaluates trust values for different UIDs assigned to a key, it would
incorrectly associate the trust value of the UID with the highest
trust value with every other UID assigned to that key. This prevents a
warning message from being given when attempting to encrypt to an
invalid UID, but due to the bug, is accepted as valid.

Patches have been applied for version 1.0.7 and all users are
encouraged to upgrade.
