Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.59129
Category:Ubuntu Local Security Checks
Title:Ubuntu USN-442-1 (evolution)
Summary:Ubuntu USN-442-1 (evolution)
Description:
The remote host is missing an update to evolution
announced via advisory USN-442-1.

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS
Ubuntu 6.10

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

Details follow:

Ulf Harnhammar of Secunia Research discovered that Evolution did not
correctly handle format strings when displaying shared memos. If a
remote attacker tricked a user into viewing a specially crafted shared
memo, they could execute arbitrary code with user privileges.

Solution:
The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
evolution 2.6.1-0ubuntu7.1

Ubuntu 6.10:
evolution 2.8.1-0ubuntu4.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Evolution or reboot
your computer to effect the necessary changes.
