Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis: Moderate: evolution security update
Advisory ID: RHSA-2005:397-01
Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2005-397.html
Issue date: 2005-05-04
Updated on: 2005-05-04
Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux
CVE Names: CAN-2005-0102 CAN-2005-0806
----------------------------------------------------------------------

1. Summary:

Updated evolution packages that fix various security issues are now available.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Problem description:

Evolution is a GNOME-based collection of personal information management (PIM) tools.

A bug was found in the way Evolution displays mail messages. It is possible that an attacker could create a specially crafted mail message that when opened by a victim causes Evolution to stop responding. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0806 to this issue.

A bug was also found in Evolution's helper program camel-lock-helper. This bug could allow a local attacker to gain root privileges if camel-lock-helper has been built to execute with elevated privileges. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0102 to this issue. On Red Hat Enterprise Linux, camel-lock-helper is not built to execute with elevated privileges by default. Please note however that if users have rebuilt Evolution from the source RPM, as the root user, camel-lock-helper may be given elevated privileges.

All users of evolution should upgrade to these updated packages, which include backported fixes to correct these issues.
