Description

GnuPG is a utility for encrypting data and creating digital signatures.

An integer overflow flaw was found in GnuPG. An attacker could create a carefully crafted message packet with a large length that could cause GnuPG to crash or possibly overwrite memory when opened. (CVE-2006-3746)

All users of GnuPG are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch to correct this issue.
