Package: gnupg
Debian-specific: no

The version of gnupg that was distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 had
a logic error in the code that checks for valid signatures which could
cause false positive results: Jim Small discovered that if the input
contained multiple signed sections the exit-code gnupg returned was
only valid for the last section, so improperly signed other sections
were not noticed.

This has been fixed in version 1.0.4-1 and we recommend that you
upgrade your gnupg package to that version. Please note that this
version of gnupg includes the RSA code directly instead of relying on
the gpg-rsa package. This means that the "load-extension rsa" command
in ~/.gnupg/options is no longer needed and must be removed: gnupg
will not work correctly if it tries to load an extension that is not
present.


wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
