Source: python-crypto
Version: 2.6.1-1
Severity: important
Tags: security upstream


the following vulnerability was published for python-crypto.

| lib/Crypto/PublicKey/ in PyCrypto through 2.6.1 generates
| weak ElGamal key parameters, which allows attackers to obtain
| sensitive information by reading ciphertext data (i.e., it does not
| have semantic security in face of a ciphertext-only attack). The
| Decisional Diffie-Hellman (DDH) assumption does not hold for
| PyCrypto's ElGamal implementation.

If you fix the vulnerability please also make sure to include the
CVE (Common Vulnerabilities & Exposures) id in your changelog entry.
