Description

Daniel Genkin, Lev Pachmanov, Itamar Pipman, and Eran Tromer discovered that GnuPG was susceptible to an attack via physical side channels. A local attacker could use this attack to possibly recover private keys. (CVE-2014-3591)

Daniel Genkin, Adi Shamir, and Eran Tromer discovered that GnuPG was susceptible to an attack via physical side channels. A local attacker could use this attack to possibly recover private keys. (CVE-2015-0837)

Hanno Bock discovered that GnuPG incorrectly handled certain malformed keyrings. If a user or automated system were tricked into opening a malformed keyring, a remote attacker could use this issue to cause GnuPG to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-1606, CVE-2015-1607)

In addition, this update improves GnuPG security by validating that the keys returned by keyservers match those requested.

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.
