Scientific Linux Security Update : openchange on SL6.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A flaw was found in the Samba suite's Perl-based DCE/RPC IDL (PIDL)
compiler. As OpenChange uses code generated by PIDL, this could have
resulted in buffer overflows in the way OpenChange handles RPC calls.
With this update, the code has been generated with an updated version
of PIDL to correct this issue. (CVE-2012-1182)

The openchange packages have been upgraded to upstream version 1.0,
which provides a number of bug fixes and enhancements over the
previous version, including support for the rebased samba4 packages
and several API changes.

This update also fixes the following bugs :

- When the user tried to modify a meeting with one
required attendee and himself as the organizer, a
segmentation fault occurred in the memcpy() function.
Consequently, the evolution-data-server application
terminated unexpectedly with a segmentation fault. This
bug has been fixed and evolution- data-server no longer
crashes in the described scenario.

- Prior to this update, OpenChange 1.0 was unable to send
messages with a large message body or with extensive
attachment. This was caused by minor issues in
OpenChange's exchange.idl definitions. This bug has been
fixed and OpenChange now sends extensive messages
without complications.
