Package        : gnupg2
Vulnerability  : integer overflow
Problem type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2006-3746
BugTraq ID     : 19110
Debian Bug     : 381204

Evgeny Legerov discovered that overly large comments can crash gnupg,
the GNU privacy guard - a free PGP replacement, which is also present
in the development branch.

For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.9.15-6sarge2.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your gnupg2 package.
