The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated evolution packages that fix various security issues are now
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Evolution is a GNOME-based collection of personal information
management (PIM) tools.
A bug was found in the way Evolution displays mail messages. It is
possible that an attacker could create a specially crafted mail
message that when opened by a victim causes Evolution to stop
responding. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0806 to this issue.
A bug was also found in Evolution's helper program camel-lock-helper.
This bug could allow a local attacker to gain root privileges if
camel-lock-helper has been built to execute with elevated privileges.
The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has
assigned the name CVE-2005-0102 to this issue. On Red Hat Enterprise
Linux, camel-lock-helper is not built to execute with elevated
privileges by default. Please note however that if users have rebuilt
Evolution from the source RPM, as the root user, camel-lock-helper may
be given elevated privileges.
All users of evolution should upgrade to these updated packages, which
include backported fixes to correct these issues.
