EulerOS 2.0 SP3 : gnupg2 (EulerOS-SA-2018-1223)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111643

Synopsis

The remote EulerOS host is missing a security update.

Description

According to the version of the gnupg2 package installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerability :

- A data validation flaw was found in the way gnupg processes file names during decryption and signature validation. An attacker may be able to inject messages into gnupg verbose message logging which may have the potential to bypass the integrity of signature authentication mechanisms and could have other unintended consequences if applications take action(s) based on parsed verbose gnupg output. (CVE-2018-12020)

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

Solution

Update the affected gnupg2 package.
