Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Test

Tavis Ormandy noticed that gnupg, the GNU privacy guard - a free PGP

though they don't contain a signature at all.
For the old stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.0.6-4woody4.
For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
version 1.4.1-1sarge1.
