Fedora Core 4 : gnupg-1.4.2.1-1 (2006-116)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2015 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

The GNU Privacy Guard provides encryption and signing for messages and
arbitrary files, and implements the OpenPGP standard as described by
IETF RFC2440.

Version 1.4.2 of GnuPG would in some cases erroneously exit with
status 0 (signaling no errors) if it was invoked to check a signature
but found no signature to check. This should be corrected in version
1.4.2.1.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
