 Package : gnupg

 Affected: 2011., Enterprise Server 5.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerability has been found and corrected in gnupg:
 
 Versions of GnuPG <= 1.4.12 are vulnerable to memory access violations
 and public keyring database corruption when importing public keys
 that have been manipulated. An OpenPGP key can be fuzzed in such a
 way that gpg segfaults (or has other memory access violations) when
 importing the key (CVE-2012-6085).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
