    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.
