gnupg integer overflow

Text taken from MITRE:

parse-packet.c in GnuPG (gpg) 1.4.3 and 1.9.20 allows remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (gpg crash) and possibly overwrite memory
via a message packet with a large length, which could lead to an
integer overflow, as demonstrated using the --no-armor option.

This issue also affects FC4

Comment 1 Rex Dieter 2006-06-22 15:28:06 UTC

Next gnupg2 build will omit the gpg2 binary, because
* has security issue (CVE-2006-3082)... duh.
* as of the latest version, 1.9.21, it doesn't build
* upstream devs say "You shall not build the gpg part.  There is a reason why it
is not enabled by default"

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2006-06-22 15:44:51 UTC
* Thu Jun 22 2006 Rex Dieter <rexdieter[AT]users.sf.net> 1.9.21-1
- 1.9.21
- omit gpg2 binary to address CVS-2006-3082 (#196190)
