The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated evolution packages that address a buffer overflow
vulnerability are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 4.
This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
Evolution is the integrated collection of e-mail, calendaring, contact
management, communications and personal information management (PIM)
tools for the GNOME desktop environment.
A flaw was found in the way Evolution parsed iCalendar timezone
attachment data. If mail which included a carefully crafted iCalendar
attachment was opened, arbitrary code could be executed as the user
running Evolution. (CVE-2008-1108)
Red Hat would like to thank Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research for
responsibly disclosing this issue.
All users of Evolution should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contains a backported patch which resolves this issue.
