Package        : gnupg
CVE ID         : CVE-2014-4617
Debian Bug     : 752497

Jean-René Reinhard, Olivier Levillain and Florian Maury reported that
GnuPG, the GNU Privacy Guard, did not properly parse certain garbled
compressed data packets. A remote attacker could use this flaw to mount
a denial of service against GnuPG by triggering an infinite loop.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.12-7+deb7u4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.16-1.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg packages.
