Description

Jean-René Reinhard, Olivier Levillain and Florian Maury reported that GnuPG, the GNU Privacy Guard, did not properly parse certain garbled compressed data packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to mount a denial of service against GnuPG by triggering an infinite loop.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.19-2+deb7u2.

For the testing distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.24-1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.24-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg2 packages.
