New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 3.6


The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


Updated gnupg and libgcrypt packages fix security vulnerabilities :

GnuPG before 1.4.19 is vulnerable to a side-channel attack which can potentially lead to an information leak (CVE-2014-3591).

GnuPG before 1.4.19 is vulnerable to a side-channel attack on data-dependent timing variations in modular exponentiation, which can potentially lead to an information leak (CVE-2015-0837).

The gnupg package has been patched to correct these issues.

GnuPG2 is vulnerable to these issues through the libgcrypt library.
The issues were fixed in libgcrypt 1.6.3. The libgcrypt package in Mandriva, at version 1.5.4, was only vulnerable to the CVE-2014-3591 issue. It has also been patched to correct this issue.


Update the affected gnupg, lib64gcrypt-devel and / or lib64gcrypt11 packages.
