SuSE 10 Security Update : gpg2 (ZYPP Patch Number 1834)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 29451


The remote SuSE 10 host is missing a security-related patch.


It is possible to crash (denial of service) the GNU Privacy Guard (gpg) by supplying a specifically crafted message specifying a very large UID, which leads to an out of memory situation or an integer overflow.

It is unclear if this problem can be exploited to execute code.

This issue is tracked by the Mitre CVE ID CVE-2006-3082.
