Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : gnupg (MDKSA-2007:059)

This script is Copyright (C) 2007-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

GnuPG prior to 1.4.7 and GPGME prior to 1.1.4, when run from the
command line, did not visually distinguish signed and unsigned
portions of OpenPGP messages with multiple components. This could
allow a remote attacker to forge the contents of an email message
without detection.

GnuPG 1.4.7 is being provided with this update and GPGME has been
patched on Mandriva 2007.0 to provide better visual notification on
these types of forgeries.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

High / CVSS Base Score : 7.8

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 24809 (mandrake_MDKSA-2007-059.nasl)

Bugtraq ID:

CVE ID: CVE-2007-1263
