    evolution-data-server vulnerability
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 13.04
    - Ubuntu 12.10
    - Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Evolution would sometimes encrypt email to the wrong recipient.
    
    Software Description:
    - evolution-data-server: Evolution suite data server
    
    Details:
    
    Yves-Alexis Perez discovered that Evolution Data Server did not properly
    select GPG recipients. Under certain circumstances, this could result in
    Evolution encrypting email to an unintended recipient.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 13.04:
      libcamel-1.2-40                 3.6.4-0ubuntu1.1
    
    Ubuntu 12.10:
      libcamel-1.2-40                 3.6.2-0ubuntu0.2
    
    Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:
      libcamel-1.2-29                 3.2.3-0ubuntu7.1
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart Evolution to make all
    the necessary changes.
