CONECTIVA LINUX SECURITY ANNOUNCEMENT 
- --------------------------------------------------------------------------

PACKAGE   : gnupg
SUMMARY   : GnuPG key validity vulnerability
DATE      : 2003-07-11 16:02:00
ID        : CLA-2003:694
RELEVANT
RELEASES  : 7.0, 8, 9

- -------------------------------------------------------------------------

DESCRIPTION
 GnuPG[1] is a OpenPGP-compliant tool for secure communication used
 to, for example, sign emails, encrypt, decrypt and verify (signed)
 data.
 
 During the development of GnuPG 1.2.2, a bug has been found in the
 key validation code. This bug causes keys with more than one user ID
 to give all user IDs on the key the amount of validity given to the
 most-valid key. In this situation, GnuPG would not emit a warning
 when a low trust ID is used for encryption if that key also contains
 a trusted enough ID.
 
 Keys with only one ID are not affected by this problem.
 
 For Conectiva Linux 7.0 and 8, the GnuPG package has been updated to
 version 1.0.7 and includes a fix provided by the authors[2]. GnuPG in
 Conectiva Linux 9 does not need a version upgrade and includes the
 same patch.
 


SOLUTION
 It is recommended that all GnuPG users upgrade their packages.
 
 IMPORTANT: as part of the changes introduced in GnuPG versions 1.0.7
 and later, public keys for which the user as a corresponding secret
 key are no longer automatically considered trusted. To ease the
 transition, a script called "convert-from-106" (part of GnuPG-1.2.2)
 has been included in these packages. If executed, this script will
 mark as trusted all public keys for which the current user has the
 corresponding private keys.
