Debian DLA-1443-1 : evolution-data-server security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 111315

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

It 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.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
