Updated gnupg/libgcrypt packages fix security vulnerabilityPublication date: 31 Aug 2016
Affected Mageia releases : 5
Felix Doerre and Vladimir Klebanov from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology discovered a flaw in the mixing functions of GnuPG's random number generator. An attacker who obtains 4640 bits from the RNG can trivially predict the next 160 bits of output (CVE-2016-6313). The gnupg package has been patched to correct these issues. GnuPG2 is vulnerable to these issues through the libgcrypt library. The libgcrypt package has also been patched to correct this issue.
