Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GnuPG and Libgcrypt,
which may result in execution of arbitrary code, Denial of Service, or
the disclosure of private keys.

Background
==========

The GNU Privacy Guard, GnuPG, is a free replacement for the PGP suite
of cryptographic software. Libgcrypt is a cryptographic library based
on GnuPG.

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

-------------------------------------------------------------------
Package / Vulnerable / Unaffected
-------------------------------------------------------------------
1 app-crypt/gnupg < 2.0.22 *>= 1.4.16
>= 2.0.22
2 dev-libs/libgcrypt < 1.5.3 >= 1.5.3
-------------------------------------------------------------------
2 affected packages

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

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in GnuPG and Libgcrypt.
Please review the CVE identifiers referenced below for details.

Impact
======

An unauthenticated remote attacker may be able to execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running GnuPG, cause a Denial of
Service condition, or bypass security restrictions. Additionally, a
side-channel attack may allow a local attacker to recover a private
key, please review "Flush+Reload: a High Resolution, Low Noise, L3
Cache Side-Channel Attack" in the References section for further
details.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All GnuPG 2.0 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-crypt/gnupg-2.0.22"

All GnuPG 1.4 users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=app-crypt/gnupg-1.4.16"

All Libgcrypt users should upgrade to the latest version:

# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=dev-libs/libgcrypt-1.5.3"
