Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
_______________________________________________________________________

Package name: evolution
Advisory ID: MDKSA-2005:141
Date: August 17th, 2005

Affected versions: 10.1, 10.2, Corporate 3.0
______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

Multiple format string vulnerabilities in Evolution 1.5 through 2.3.6.1
allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly
execute arbitrary code via (1) full vCard data, (2) contact data from
remote LDAP servers, or (3) task list data from remote servers.
(CAN-2005-2549)

A format string vulnerability in Evolution 1.4 through 2.3.6.1 allows
remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly
execute arbitrary code via the calendar entries such as task lists,
which are not properly handled when the user selects the Calendars tab.
(CAN-2005-2550)
