FreeBSD : gnupg -- user id integer overflow vulnerability (f900bda8-0472-11db-bbf7-000c6ec775d9)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 21756


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


If GnuPG processes a userid with a very long packet length, GnuPG can crash due to insufficient bounds check. This can result in a denial-of-service condition or potentially execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running GnuPG.


Update the affected package.
