    Package        : gnupg
    Vulnerability  : several
    Problem-Type   : local(remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-6169 CVE-2006-6235
    Debian Bug     : 401894 401898 401914
    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the GNU privacy,
    a free PGP replacement, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
        Werner Koch discovered that a buffer overflow in a sanitising function
        may lead to execution of arbitrary code when running gnupg
        Tavis Ormandy discovered that parsing a carefully crafted OpenPGP
        packet may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, as a function
        pointer of an internal structure may be controlled through the
        decryption routines.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.1-1.sarge6.
    For the upcoming stable distribution (etch) these problems have been
    fixed in version 1.4.6-1.
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.4.6-1.
    We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg packages.
