Fedora Core 4 : gnupg- (2006-116)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20937


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


The GNU Privacy Guard provides encryption and signing for messages and arbitrary files, and implements the OpenPGP standard as described by IETF RFC2440.

Version 1.4.2 of GnuPG would in some cases erroneously exit with status 0 (signaling no errors) if it was invoked to check a signature but found no signature to check. This should be corrected in version

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


Update the affected gnupg and / or gnupg-debuginfo packages.
