Package        : gnupg
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : local(remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-1263
Debian Bug     : 413922 414170

Gerardo Richarte discovered that GnuPG, a free PGP replacement, provides
insufficient user feedback if an OpenPGP message contains both unsigned
and signed portions. Inserting text segments into an otherwise signed
message could be exploited to forge the content of signed messages.
This update prevents such attacks; the old behaviour can still be
activated by passing the --allow-multiple-messages option.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.1-1.sarge7.

For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) these problems have been
fixed in version 1.4.6-2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.4.6-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg packages.
