Scientific Linux Security Update : evolution on SL3.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 60546
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionIt was discovered that evolution did not properly validate NTLM (NT LAN Manager) authentication challenge packets. A malicious server using NTLM authentication could cause evolution to disclose portions of its memory or crash during user authentication. (CVE-2009-0582)
An integer overflow flaw which could cause heap-based buffer overflow was found in the Base64 encoding routine used by evolution. This could cause evolution to crash, or, possibly, execute an arbitrary code when large untrusted data blocks were Base64-encoded. (CVE-2009-0587)
All running instances of evolution must be restarted for the update to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected evolution and / or evolution-devel packages.
