   This GnuPG LTSS roll-up update fixes two security issues:

   * CVE-2013-4351: GnuPG treated no-usage-permitted keys
   as all-usages-permitted.
   * CVE-2013-4402: An infinite recursion in the
   compressed packet parser was fixed.
   * CVE-2013-4242: GnuPG allowed local users to obtain
   private RSA keys via a cache side-channel attack involving
   the L3 cache, aka Flush+Reload.
   * CVE-2012-6085: The read_block function in
   g10/import.c in GnuPG 1.4.x, when importing a key, allowed
   remote attackers to corrupt the public keyring database or
   cause a denial of service (application crash) via a crafted
   length field of an OpenPGP packet.

   We also fixed a permission issue on opening new files

   Security Issues:

   * CVE-2013-4351
