Red Hat Product Errata RHSA-2003:176 normal SHIPPED_LIVE Moderate: gnupg security update 2003-06-23 04:00:00 UTC

Description Mark J. Cox 2003-05-07 08:12:17 UTC
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.



Errata in progress upgrading GnuPG to 1.0.7 with the addition of official patch.
