    CVE ID         : CVE-2017-7526
    
    Daniel J. Bernstein, Joachim Breitner, Daniel Genkin, Leon Groot
    Bruinderink, Nadia Heninger, Tanja Lange, Christine van Vredendaal and
    Yuval Yarom discovered that GnuPG is prone to a local side-channel
    attack allowing full key recovery for RSA-1024.
    
    For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1.4.18-7+deb8u4.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg packages.
