Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3675-2

Authored by Ubuntu | Site security.ubuntu.com

Ubuntu Security Notice 3675-2 - USN-3675-1 fixed a vulnerability in GnuPG 2 for Ubuntu 18.04 LTS and Ubuntu 17.10. This update provides the corresponding update for GnuPG 2 in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and Ubuntu 14.04 LTS. Marcus Brinkmann discovered that during decryption or verification, GnuPG did not properly filter out terminal sequences when reporting the original filename. An attacker could use this to specially craft a file that would cause an application parsing GnuPG output to incorrectly interpret the status of the cryptographic operation reported by GnuPG. Various other issues were also addressed.
