USN-4516-1: GnuPG vulnerability
17 September 2020
GnuPG could be made to expose sensitive information.
- gnupg2 - GNU privacy guard - a free PGP replacement
It was discovered that GnuPG signatures could be forged when the SHA-1
algorithm is being used. This update removes validating signatures based on
SHA-1 that were generated after 2019-01-19. In environments where this is
still required, a new option --allow-weak-key-signatures can be used to
revert this behaviour.
