From:  "Nalin Dahyabhai" <>
Subject:  [SECURITY] Fedora Core 6 Update: gnupg-1.4.7-2
Date:  Mon, 12 Mar 2007 15:14:42 -0400

--------------------------------------------------------------------- Fedora Update Notification FEDORA-2007-315 2007-03-12 --------------------------------------------------------------------- Product : Fedora Core 6 Name : gnupg Version : 1.4.7 Release : 2 Summary : A GNU utility for secure communication and data storage. Description : GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) is a GNU utility for encrypting data and creating digital signatures. GnuPG has advanced key management capabilities and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet standard described in RFC2440. Since GnuPG doesn't use any patented algorithm, it is not compatible with any version of PGP2 (PGP2.x uses only IDEA for symmetric-key encryption, which is patented worldwide). --------------------------------------------------------------------- Update Information: This updates GnuPG to version 1.4.7, changing the default behavior so that gnupg now flags message streams which contain multiple plaintexts as an error. This prevents errors which would occur when applications which called gnupg assumed that this was already the default behavior. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Mon Mar 5 2007 Nalin Dahyabhai <> - 1.4.7-2 - update to 1.4.7, changing the default to not allow multiple plaintexts in a single stream --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: ac91b4ae95f89d169049c83a65666bcbbbc71368 SRPMS/gnupg-1.4.7-2.src.rpm ac91b4ae95f89d169049c83a65666bcbbbc71368 noarch/gnupg-1.4.7-2.src.rpm 452302e91364cb83cd35dfb2afeb86b309dfa898 ppc/gnupg-1.4.7-2.ppc.rpm 527626c3bb15b49139c04568fb19c0aac8037c5f ppc/debug/gnupg-debuginfo-1.4.7-2.ppc.rpm 429d4b1e0b10a31b66f4bb13b4b4c10cc1be82ed x86_64/gnupg-1.4.7-2.x86_64.rpm 85bdcd1799cc9d596cde3ec80336db685c55cd0f x86_64/debug/gnupg-debuginfo-1.4.7-2.x86_64.rpm d78ac86415e17ee11d90d6eceb365df262495f7a i386/gnupg-1.4.7-2.i386.rpm 0df9134451479ec3e7620d442d2474216a354ced i386/debug/gnupg-debuginfo-1.4.7-2.i386.rpm This update can be installed with the 'yum' update program.
