Fedora Update Notification
2015-12-24 21:18:55.866174

Name        : gnupg
Product     : Fedora 23
Version     : 1.4.20
Release     : 1.fc23
URL         : http://www.gnupg.org/
Summary     : A GNU utility for secure communication and data storage
Description :
GnuPG (GNU Privacy Guard) is a GNU utility for encrypting data and
creating digital signatures. GnuPG has advanced key management
capabilities and is compliant with the proposed OpenPGP Internet
standard described in RFC2440. Since GnuPG doesn't use any patented
algorithm, it is not compatible with any version of PGP2 (PGP2.x uses
only IDEA for symmetric-key encryption, which is patented worldwide).

Update Information:

  - New upstream v1.4.20 (#1293112)   - Reject signatures made using the MD5
hash algorithm unless the new option --allow-weak-digest-algos or --pgp2 are
given.   - New option --weak-digest to specify hash algorithms which should be
considered weak.   - Changed default cipher for symmetric-only encryption to
AES-128.   - Fix for DoS when importing certain garbled secret keys.   -
Improved error reporting for secret subkey w/o corresponding public subkey.   -
Improved error reporting in decryption due to wrong algorithm.   - Fix
cluttering of stdout with trustdb info in double verbose mode.   - Pass a DBUS
envvar to gpg-agent for use by gnome-keyring.

This update can be installed with the "yum" update program. Use
su -c 'yum update gnupg' at the command line.
