You are right, the subject is not directly related to "cryptography" but
to "security" .

The threat model is better described in the ticket that has been opened
to various PGP email client's plugin such as
http://support.gpgtools.org/discussions/everything/13667-privacy-leak-in-version-and-comment-header 
.

With the fixes that has been done in GnuPG, Enigmail and GPGTool, such
software should provide safe default against this issue.

It has been also reported that Symantec Encryption Desktop (formerly PGP
Desktop) add multiple fingerprint to header leading to information
leak.  An issue ticket has been opened also for such commercial product.

The commercial PGP software add the following headers, at least not
adding the exact version number:

Received: from XXXXXXX
  by XXXX-YYYYY (PGP Universal service);
  Sun, XX XXX 20XX 11:11:11 +0100
X-PGP-Universal: processed;
	by XX-XXXXX on Sun, XX XXX 20XX 11:11:11 +0100
