gnupg -- buffer overflow


Werner Koch reports:

When running GnuPG interactively, special crafted messages may be used to crash gpg or gpg2. Running gpg in batch mode, as done by all software using gpg as a backend (e.g. mailers), is not affected by this bug.

Exploiting this overflow seems to be possible.

gpg-agent, gpgsm, gpgv or other tools from the GnuPG suite are not affected.
