Debian DLA-1080-1 : gnupg security update
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 102888
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionDaniel J. Bernstein, Joachim Breitner, Daniel Genkin, Leon Groot Bruinderink, Nadia Heninger, Tanja Lange, Christine van Vredendaal and Yuval Yarom discovered that gnupg is prone to a local side-channel attack allowing full key recovery for RSA-1024.
See https://eprint.iacr.org/2017/627 for details.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1.4.12-7+deb7u9.
We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg packages.
