Package : evolution
Vulnerability : integer overflow
Problem-Type : local
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2005-0102

Max Vozeler discovered an integer overflow in a helper application inside of Evolution, a free grouware suite. A local attacker could cause the setuid root helper to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges.
