Package : gtkhtml
Vulnerability : null pointer dereference
Problem-Type : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID : CAN-2003-0541
Debian Bug : 279726

Alan Cox discovered a problem in gtkhtml, an HTML rendering widget used by the Evolution mail reader. Certain malformed messages could cause a cras due to a null pointer dereference.

For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.2-1.woody1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in version 1.0.4-6.2.

We recommend that you upgrade your gtkhtml package and restart Evolution.
