It was discovered that evolution did not properly validate NTLM (NT
LAN Manager) authentication challenge packets. A malicious server

application using evolution-data-server, to crash, or, possibly,
execute an arbitrary code when large untrusted data blocks were
All running instances of evolution and evolution-data-server must be
