--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-2792
2009-03-18 18:32:42
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : evolution-data-server
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 2.22.3
Release     : 3.fc9
URL         : http://www.gnome.org/projects/evolution/
Summary     : Backend data server for Evolution
Description :
The evolution-data-server package provides a unified backend for programs that work
with contacts, tasks, and calendar information.

It was originally developed for Evolution (hence the name), but is now used
by other packages.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

This update fixes two security issues:    Evolution Data Server did not properly
check the Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) signatures used
for public key encryption and signing of e-mail messages. An attacker could use
this flaw to spoof a signature by modifying the text of the e-mail message
displayed to the user. (CVE-2009-0547)    It was discovered that Evolution Data
Server did not properly validate NTLM (NT LAN Manager) authentication challenge
packets. A malicious server using NTLM authentication could cause an application
using Evolution Data Server to disclose portions of its memory or crash during
user authentication. (CVE-2009-0582)
