New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

It 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.

Solution

Update the affected evolution and / or evolution-devel packages.
