Allan noticed that the vulnerability identified in libksba [1] is also present in gnupg 2.1.0 (duplicated code). This has been fixed upstream [2] but I am not sure whether a new version will be released, so I believe it would be wise to backport the patch.
While investigating this issue, I also stumbled upon [3], which seems bad at first look, so we may want to backport that too.

This task depends upon
