    KB Sriram discovered that GnuPG, the GNU Privacy Guard did not
    sufficiently sanitise public keys on import, which could lead to
    memory and keyring corruption.
    
    The problem affects both version 1, in the 'gnupg' package, and
    version two, in the 'gnupg2' package.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.10-4+squeeze1 of gnupg and version 2.0.19-2+squeeze1 of
    gnupg2.
    
    For the testing distribution (wheezy) and unstable distribution (sid),
    this problem has been fixed in version 1.4.12-7 of gnupg and
    version 2.0.19-2 of gnupg2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg and/or gnupg2 packages.
