gnupg2 vulnerability
==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- - Ubuntu 18.10
- - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

GnuPG could allow unintended access to network services.

Software Description:
- - gnupg2: GNU privacy guard - a free PGP replacement

Details:

Ben Fuhrmannek discovered that GnuPG incorrectly handled Web Key Directory
