    Package        : libgcrypt11
    CVE ID         : CVE-2014-3591 CVE-2015-0837
    
    Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in libgcrypt:
    
    CVE-2014-3591
    
        The Elgamal decryption routine was susceptible to a side-channel
        attack discovered by researchers of Tel Aviv University. Ciphertext
        blinding was enabled to counteract it. Note that this may have a
        quite noticeable impact on Elgamal decryption performance.
    
    CVE-2015-0837
    
        The modular exponentiation routine mpi_powm() was susceptible to a
        side-channel attack caused by data-dependent timing variations when
        accessing its internal pre-computed table.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.5.0-5+deb7u3.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your libgcrypt11 packages.
