Description Sam James archtester Gentoo Infrastructure gentoo-dev Security 2020-03-01 17:46:41 UTC
"The PGP signing plugin in Gradle before 6.0 relies on the SHA-1 algorithm, which might allow an attacker to replace an artifact with a different one that has the same SHA-1 message digest, a related issue to CVE-2005-4900."
