FreeBSD : GnuPG does not detect injection of unsigned data (948921ad-afbc-11da-bad9-02e081235dab)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21478


The remote FreeBSD host is missing a security-related update.


Werner Koch reports :

In the aftermath of the false positive signature verfication bug (announced 2006-02-15) more thorough testing of the fix has been done and another vulnerability has been detected. This new problem affects the use of *gpg* for verification of signatures which are _not_ detached signatures. The problem also affects verification of signatures embedded in encrypted messages; i.e. standard use of gpg for mails.


Update the affected package.
