Noteworthy changes in version 2.2.8 (2018-06-08)

  • gpg: Decryption of messages not using the MDC mode will now lead to a hard failure even if a legacy cipher algorithm was used. The option --ignore-mdc-error can be used to turn this failure into a warning. Take care: Never use that option unconditionally or without a prior warning.
  • gpg: The MDC encryption mode is now always used regardless of the cipher algorithm or any preferences. For testing --rfc2440 can be used to create a message without an MDC.
  • gpg: Sanitize the diagnostic output of the original file name in verbose mode. [CVE-2018-12020]
  • gpg: Detect suspicious multiple plaintext packets in a more reliable way.
  • gpg: Fix the duplicate key signature detection code.
  • gpg: The options --no-mdc-warn, --force-mdc, --no-force-mdc, --disable-mdc and --no-disable-mdc have no more effect.
  • agent: Add DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS and a few other envvars to the list of startup environment variables.
