Subject: Trustix Security Advisory - gnupg, ftpd-BSD


Today we updated gnupg and ftpd-BSD. All versions of Trustix Secure Linux are affected.

This update stops gnupg from importing private keys unless this has been explicitly enabled, as this will corrupt the users web of trust. It also clears up the problem with gnupg ignoring detached signatures if the file being checked contains clearsigned data.

This contains a revised version of the replydirname() patch, as the first version we released contained a typo making the ftpd behave erratically. Thanks to Janåke Rönnblom for pointing this out.

For version 1.2:
