    Package: gnupg
    Debian-specific: no
    
    The version of gnupg that was distributed in Debian GNU/Linux 2.2 had
    a logic error in the code that checks for valid signatures which could
    cause false positive results: Jim Small discovered that if the input
    contained multiple signed sections the exit-code gnupg returned was
    only valid for the last section, so improperly signed other sections
    were not noticed.
    
    This has been fixed in version 1.0.4-1 and we recommend that you
    upgrade your gnupg package to that version. Please note that this
    version of gnupg includes the RSA code directly instead of relying on
    the gpg-rsa package. This means that the "load-extension rsa" command
    in ~/.gnupg/options is no longer needed and must be removed: gnupg
    will not work correctly if it tries to load an extension that is not
    present.
    
    
    wget url
            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.
    
    You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
    footer to the proper configuration.
