Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.55035
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-166-1 (evolution)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-166-1 (evolution)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to evolution
announced via advisory USN-166-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 4.10 (Warty Warthog)
Ubuntu 5.04 (Hoary Hedgehog)

The following packages are affected: evolution

Ulf Harnhammar disovered several format string vulnerabilities in
Evolution. By tricking an user into viewing a specially crafted vCard
attached to an email, specially crafted contact data from an LDAP
server, specially crafted task lists from remote servers, or saving
Calendar entries with this malicious task list data, it was possible
for an attacker to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running Evolution.

In addition, this update fixes a Denial of Service vulnerability in
the mail attachment parser. This could be exploited to crash Evolution
by tricking an user into opening a malicious email with a specially
crafted attachment file name. This does only affect the Ubuntu 4.10
version, the Evolution package shipped with Ubuntu 5.04 is not
affected. (CVE-2005-0806)

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading the affected package to
version 2.0.2-0ubuntu2.3 (for Ubuntu 4.10), or 2.2.1.1-0ubuntu4.2 (for
Ubuntu 5.04). After performing a standard system upgrade you need to
restart Evolution to effect the necessary changes.
