EulerOS 2.0 SP5 : evolution-data-server (EulerOS-SA-2020-2243)

medium Nessus Plugin ID 142113


The remote EulerOS host is missing multiple security updates.


According to the versions of the evolution-data-server packages installed, the EulerOS installation on the remote host is affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- evolution-data-server (eds) through 3.36.3 has a STARTTLS buffering issue that affects SMTP and POP3.
When a server sends a 'begin TLS' response, eds reads additional data and evaluates it in a TLS context, aka 'response injection.'(CVE-2020-14928)

- In GNOME evolution-data-server before 3.35.91, a malicious server can crash the mail client with a NULL pointer dereference by sending an invalid (e.g., minimal) CAPABILITY line on a connection attempt. This is related to imapx_free_capability and imapx_connect_to_server.(CVE-2020-16117)

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


Update the affected evolution-data-server packages.
