The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated evolution-data-server package that fixes a security bug are
now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
The evolution-data-server package provides a unified backend for
programs that work with contacts, tasks, and calendar information.
A flaw was found in the way evolution-data-server processed certain
APOP authentication requests. By sending certain responses when
evolution-data-server attempted to authenticate against an APOP
server, a remote attacker could potentially acquire certain portions
of a user's authentication credentials. (CVE-2007-1558)
All users of evolution-data-server should upgrade to these updated
packages, which contain a backported patch which resolves this issue.
