Description Jeroen Roovers (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2015-04-10 04:46:35 UTC
* Fix OpenPGP Armor Header Line parsing in Dpkg::Control::Hash. We should
     only accept [\r\t ] as trailing whitespace, although RFC4880 does not
     clarify what whitespace really maps to, we should really match the GnuPG
     implementation anyway, as that's what we use to verify the signatures.
     Reported by Jann Horn <>. Fixes CVE-2015-0840.
