Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2009:0355
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2009:0355.

Evolution is the integrated collection of e-mail, calendaring, contact
management, communications, and personal information management (PIM) tools
for the GNOME desktop environment.

Evolution Data Server provides a unified back-end for applications which
interact with contacts, task and calendar information. Evolution Data
Server was originally developed as a back-end for Evolution, but is now
used by multiple other applications.

Evolution did not properly check the Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail
Extensions (S/MIME) signatures used for public key encryption and signing
of e-mail messages. An attacker could use this flaw to spoof a signature by
modifying the text of the e-mail message displayed to the user. (CVE-2009-0547)

It was discovered that evolution did not properly validate NTLM (NT LAN
Manager) authentication challenge packets. A malicious server using NTLM
authentication could cause evolution to disclose portions of its memory or
crash during user authentication. (CVE-2009-0582)

Multiple integer overflow flaws which could cause heap-based buffer
overflows were found in the Base64 encoding routines used by evolution and
evolution-data-server. This could cause evolution, or an application using
evolution-data-server, to crash, or, possibly, execute an arbitrary code
when large untrusted data blocks were Base64-encoded. (CVE-2009-0587)

All users of evolution and evolution-data-server are advised to upgrade to
these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these
issues. All running instances of evolution and evolution-data-server must
be restarted for the update to take effect.

Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
