Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2003-05-07 04:12:17 EDT
The key validation code in GnuPG 1.2.2 does not properly determine the validity
of keys with multiple user IDs and assigns the greatest validity of the most
valid user ID, which prevents GnuPG from warning the encrypting user when a user
ID does not have a trusted path.
