Fedora 9 : evolution-data-server-2.22.3-3.fc9 (2009-2792)

This script is Copyright (C) 2009-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update fixes two security issues: Evolution Data Server did not
properly check the Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions
(S/MIME) signatures used for public key encryption and signing of
e-mail messages. An attacker could use this flaw to spoof a signature
by modifying the text of the e-mail message displayed to the user.
(CVE-2009-0547) It was discovered that Evolution Data Server did not
properly validate NTLM (NT LAN Manager) authentication challenge
packets. A malicious server using NTLM authentication could cause an
application using Evolution Data Server to disclose portions of its
memory or crash during user authentication. (CVE-2009-0582)

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.
