Description Ville Skyttä 2007-03-10 17:19:40 EST

"Sylpheed 2.2.7 and earlier does not properly use the --status-fd argument when
invoking GnuPG, which prevents Sylpheed from visually distinguishing between
signed and unsigned portions of OpenPGP messages with multiple components, which
allows remote attackers to forge the contents of a message without detection."

This issue is reported against a suspiciously old version of Sylpheed; bug filed
for verification whether current versions in FE5+ are affected.
Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2007-03-10 18:27:48 EST
Sylpheed uses GPGME, and GPGME 1.1.4 in FE6+ fixes the vulnerability:

FE5 includes a patched version of GPGME 1.1.2
