Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2019-11841.
More information:

This package ignored the value of the Hash header, which allows an attacker to spoof it. An attacker can not only embed arbitrary Armor Headers, but also prepend arbitrary text to cleartext messages without invalidating the signatures.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 0.0~hg190-1+deb8u2.

We recommend that you upgrade your golang-go.crypto packages.
