    Package        : evolution
    CVE ID         : CVE-2018-15587
    Debian Bug     : 924616
    
    Hanno Böck discovered that Evolution was vulnerable to OpenPGP
    signatures being spoofed for arbitrary messages using a specially
    crafted HTML email. This issue was mitigated by moving the security
    bar with encryption and signature information above the message
    headers.
    
    For the stable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.22.6-1+deb9u2.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your evolution packages.
    
    For the detailed security status of evolution please refer to
    its security tracker page at:
