Synopsis :

The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.

Description :

Werner Koch reports :

In the aftermath of the false positive signature verfication bug
(announced 2006-02-15) more thorough testing of the fix has been done
and another vulnerability has been detected. This new problem affects
the use of *gpg* for verification of signatures which are _not_
detached signatures. The problem also affects verification of
signatures embedded in encrypted messages; i.e. standard use of gpg
for mails.
