    Package        : libgcrypt11
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-5270
    
    Daniel Genkin, Itamar Pipman and Eran Tromer discovered that Elgamal
    encryption subkeys in applications using the libgcrypt11 library, for
    example GnuPG 2.x, could be leaked via a side-channel attack.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.5.0-5+deb7u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libgcrypt11 packages.
