USN69-1 : evolution vulnerability

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
evolution vulnerability

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

Summary :

These remote packages are missing security patches :
- evolution
- evolution-dev
- evolution1.5
- evolution1.5-dev


Description :

Max Vozeler discovered an integer overflow in camel-lock-helper. An
user-supplied length value was not validated, so that a value of -1
caused a buffer allocation of 0 bytes
this buffer was then filled by
an arbitrary amount of user-supplied data.

A local attacker or a malicious POP3 server could exploit this to
execute arbitrary code with root rights (because camel-lock-helper
is installed as setuid root).

Solution :

Upgrade to :
- evolution-2.0.2-0ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- evolution-dev-2.0.2-0ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- evolution1.5-2.0.2-0ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
- evolution1.5-dev-2.0.2-0ubuntu2.1 (Ubuntu 4.10)
