Package        : gnupg
CVE ID         : CVE-2018-12020

Marcus Brinkmann discovered that GnuGPG performed insufficient
sanitisation of file names displayed in status messages, which could be
abused to fake the verification status of a signed email.

Details can be found in the upstream advisory at
https://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnupg-announce/2018q2/000425.html

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed
in version 1.4.18-7+deb8u5.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg packages.

For the detailed security status of gnupg please refer to its security
tracker page at:
