The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way Evolution parsed iCalendar timezone
attachment data. If the Itip Formatter plug-in was disabled and a user
opened a mail with a carefully crafted iCalendar attachment, arbitrary
code could be executed as the user running Evolution. (CVE-2008-1108)
Note: the Itip Formatter plug-in, which allows calendar information
(attachments with a MIME type of 'text/calendar') to be displayed as
part of the e-mail message, is enabled by default.
A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Evolution
parsed iCalendar attachments with an overly long 'DESCRIPTION'
property string. If a user responded to a carefully crafted iCalendar
attachment in a particular way, arbitrary code could be executed as
the user running Evolution. (CVE-2008-1109).
