    Package        : gnupg
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-5270
    Debian Bug     : 725411
    
    Genkin, Pipman and Tromer discovered a side-channel attack on Elgamal
    encryption subkeys (CVE-2014-5270).
    
    In addition, this update hardens GnuPG's behaviour when treating
    keyserver responses; GnuPG now filters keyserver responses to only
    accepts those keyid's actually requested by the user.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.12-7+deb7u6.
    
    For the testing (jessie) and unstable distribution (sid), this
    problem has been fixed in version 1.4.18-4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg packages.
