Synopsis

The remote SUSE host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update for gpg2 fixes the following issues :

- CVE-2018-12020: GnuPG mishandled the original filename
during decryption and verification actions, which
allowed remote attackers to spoof the output that GnuPG
sends on file descriptor 2 to other programs that use
the '--status-fd 2' option (bsc#1096745)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the SUSE security advisory. Tenable

without introducing additional issues.
