Debian Security Advisory DSA-2731-1 security@debian.org http://www.debian.org/security/ Thijs Kinkhorst July 29, 2013 http://www.debian.org/security/faq


Package : libgcrypt11 Vulnerability : information leak Problem type : local Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2013-4242

Yarom and Falkner discovered that RSA secret keys in applications using the libgcrypt11 library, for example GnuPG 2.x, could be leaked via a side channel attack, where a malicious local user could obtain private key information from another user on the system.

For the oldstable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.5-2+squeeze1.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.0-5+deb7u1.

For the testing distribution (jessie) and unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 1.5.3-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your libgcrypt11 packages.
