gpgv in GnuPG before 1.4.2.1 when using unattended signature verification returns a 0 exit code in certain cases even when the detached signature file does not carry a signature which could cause programs that use gpgv to assume that the signature verification has succeeded. Note: this also occurs when running the equivalent command "gpg --verify".
