Description

Jean-Rene Reinhard, Olivier Levillain and Florian Maury discovered that GnuPG incorrectly handled certain OpenPGP messages. If a user or automated system were tricked into processing a specially crafted message, GnuPG could consume resources, resulting in a denial of service.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
