Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : cairo (MDKSA-2006:057)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

GNOME Evolution allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
(persistent client crash) via an attached text file that contains
'Content-Disposition: inline' in the header, and a very long line in
the body, which causes the client to repeatedly crash until the e-mail
message is manually removed, possibly due to a buffer overflow, as
demonstrated using an XML attachment.

The underlying issue is in libcairo, which is used by recent versions
of Evolution for message rendering.

The Corporate Desktop 3.0 version of Evolution does not use libcairo
and is not vulnerable to this issue.

Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0

Family: Mandriva Local Security Checks

Nessus Plugin ID: 21115 (mandrake_MDKSA-2006-057.nasl)

CVE ID: CVE-2006-0528
