Ubuntu 10.04 LTS / 12.04 LTS / 14.04 LTS : gpgme1.0 vulnerability (USN-2307-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 77049
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionTomas Trnka discovered that GPGME incorrectly handled certain certificate line lengths. An attacker could use this issue to cause applications using GPGME to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected libgpgme11 package.
