Fedora 7 : evolution-2.10.3-8.fc7 (2008-2290)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 31374
SynopsisThe remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
DescriptionUlf 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.
SolutionUpdate the affected evolution package.
