    Package        : gnupg
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : remote
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CVE-2006-0049
    Tavis Ormandy noticed that gnupg, the GNU privacy guard - a free PGP
    replacement, can be tricked to emit a "good signature" status message
    when a valid signature is included which does not belong to the data
    The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by this problem.
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.4.1-1.sarge3.

    We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg package.
