Security Advisory Updated gnupg packages fix validation bug

Advisory: RHSA-2003:175-06
Type: Security Advisory
Severity: N/A
Issued on: 2003-05-20
Last updated on: 2003-05-20
Affected Products: Red Hat Linux 7.1
Red Hat Linux 7.2
Red Hat Linux 7.3
Red Hat Linux 8.0
Red Hat Linux 9
CVEs (cve.mitre.org): CVE-2003-0255

Details

Updated gnupg packages correcting a bug in the GnuPG key validation
functions are now available.

The GNU Privacy Guard (GnuPG) is a utility for encrypting data and
creating digital signatures.

When evaluating trust values for different UIDs assigned to a given key,
GnuPG versions earlier than 1.2.2 would incorrectly associate the trust
value of the UID with the highest trust value with every UID assigned to
that key. This would prevent an expected warning message from being generated.

All users are advised to upgrade to these errata packages which include
patches from the GnuPG development team that correct this issue for GnuPG
versions 1.0.7 and 1.2.1. This update also upgrades Red Hat Linux 7.1, 7.2,
and 7.3 users to GnuPG version 1.0.7.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

To update all RPMs for your particular architecture, run:

rpm -Fvh [filenames]

where [filenames] is a list of the RPMs you wish to upgrade. Only those
RPMs which are currently installed will be updated. Those RPMs which are
not installed but included in the list will not be updated. Note that you
can also use wildcards (*.rpm) if your current directory *only* contains the
desired RPMs.

Please note that this update is also available via Red Hat Network. Many
people find this an easier way to apply updates. To use Red Hat Network,
launch the Red Hat Update Agent with the following command:

up2date

This will start an interactive process that will result in the appropriate
RPMs being upgraded on your system.
