        Immunix OS Security Advisory


Packages updated: gnupg Affected products: Immunix OS 6.2, 7.0-beta, and 7.0 Bugs Fixed: immunix/1583 Date: April 30, 2001 Advisory ID: IMNX-2001-70-018-01 Author: Greg Kroah-Hartman <greg@wirex.com>


Description:
A new version of GnuPG, 1.0.5, has been released that fixes a number of bugs and security problems, including a widely-publicized vulnerability that makes it easier for the attacker to recover your private key if they can steal your key ring. As always, the confidentiality of your key ring is paramount to the security of public key encryption. For a full list of everything that has changed in this release, please see:

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