Synopsis
========

Automated systems using GnuPG may leak plaintext portions of an
encrypted message.

Background
==========

GnuPG is complete and free replacement for PGP, a tool for secure
communication and data storage.

Affected packages
=================

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-crypt/gnupg < 1.4.1 >= 1.4.1

Description
===========

A flaw has been identified in an integrity checking mechanism of the
OpenPGP protocol.

Impact
======

An automated system using GnuPG that allows an attacker to repeatedly
discover the outcome of an integrity check (perhaps by observing the
time required to return a response, or via overly verbose error
messages) could theoretically reveal a small portion of plaintext.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All GnuPG users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-crypt/gnupg-1.4.1"
