Subject: Trustix Security Advisory - ping gnupg ypbind

Hi

Trustix recently released several updated packages:

iputils: Fixes serveral problems in ping including a buffer overflow.
gnupg:   Fixed a serious bug which could lead to false signature
         verification results when more than one signature is fed to gpg.
ypbind:  Local root exploit.
Users of TSL 1.0x and 1.1 that worry about local security should definitely upgrade.

MD5sums:
9e2bbf3ddd728da4cbab3ece1ba390b7 gnupg-1.0.4-2tr.i586.rpm
