SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionIt was discovered that there was a protocol implementation error in evolution-data-server where 'STARTTLS not supported' errors from IMAP servers were ignored leading to the use of insecure connections without the user's knowledge or consent.
For Debian 8 'Jessie', this issue has been fixed in evolution-data-server version 3.12.9~git20141128.5242b0-2+deb8u4.
We recommend that you upgrade your evolution-data-server packages.
