Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

Ulf Harnhammar of Secunia Research discovered a format string flaw in
the way Evolution displayed encrypted mail content. If a user opened a
carefully crafted mail message, arbitrary code could be executed as
the user running Evolution. (CVE-2008-0072)

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
