Mandriva: Updated gnupg packages provide enhanced forgery detection Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake GnuPG prior to 1.4.7 and GPGME prior to 1.1.4, when run from the command line, did not visually distinguish signed and unsigned portions of OpenPGP messages with multiple components. This could allow a remote attacker to forge the contents of an email message without detection. GnuPG 1.4.7 is being provided with this update and GPGME has been patched on Mandriva 2007.0 to provide better visual notification on these types of forgeries.
