Fedora Core 5 : gnupg-1.4.4-2 (2006-755)

High Nessus Plugin ID 24133


The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.


This update upgrades to upstream version 1.4.4, which places a limit on the size of user ID packets, closing a possible integer overflow (CVE-2006-3082).

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.
