  fish stiqz of Synnergy Networks recently discovered a format
  flaw in the version of GnuPG included in all versions of Immunix
  OS. Please see http://www.securityfocus.com/archive/1/187352 for
  more information. Because the flaw occurs in a call to the gnupg
  internal function tty_printf, FormatGuard does not protect against
  this vulnerability. A new version of GnuPG, 1.0.6, has been released
  to fix this problem.

  All Immunix OS users are encouraged to upgrade to this latest version.
