=========================================================== 
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-393-2          December 07, 2006
gnupg2 vulnerabilities
CVE-2006-6169, CVE-2006-6235
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.10:
  gnupg2                                   1.9.21-0ubuntu5.2

In general, a standard system upgrade is sufficient to effect the
necessary changes.

Details follow:

USN-389-1 and USN-393-1 fixed vulnerabilities in gnupg.  This update 
provides the corresponding updates for gnupg2.

Original advisory details:

  A buffer overflow was discovered in GnuPG.  By tricking a user into 
  running gpg interactively on a specially crafted message, an attacker 
  could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.  This 
  vulnerability is not exposed when running gpg in batch mode.  
  (CVE-2006-6169)

  Tavis Ormandy discovered that gnupg was incorrectly using the stack.  
  If a user were tricked into processing a specially crafted message, an 
  attacker could execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges.
  (CVE-2006-6235)


Updated packages for Ubuntu 6.10:
