    Synopsis:          Moderate: gnupg security update
    Advisory ID:       RHSA-2014:0016-01
    Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-0016.html
    Issue date:        2014-01-08
    CVE Names:         CVE-2013-4576 
    =====================================================================
    
    1. Summary:
    
    An updated gnupg package that fixes one security issue is now available for
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having moderate
    security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
    which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in
    the References section.
    
    2. Relevant releases/architectures:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux (v. 5 server) - i386, ia64, ppc, s390x, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
    
    3. Description:
    
    The GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG or GPG) is a tool for encrypting data and
    creating digital signatures, compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet
    standard and the S/MIME standard.
    
    It was found that GnuPG was vulnerable to side-channel attacks via acoustic
    cryptanalysis. An attacker in close range to a target system that is
    decrypting ciphertexts could possibly use this flaw to recover the RSA
    secret key from that system. (CVE-2013-4576)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank Werner Koch of GnuPG upstream for reporting
    this issue. Upstream acknowledges Genkin, Shamir, and Tromer as the
    original reporters.
    
    All gnupg users are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which
    contains a backported patch to correct this issue.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
    
    This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the
    Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
    https://access.redhat.com/site/articles/11258
