Package        : evolution
Vulnerability  : format string vulnerabilities
Problem-Scope  : remote
Debian-specific: No
CVE ID         : CAN-2005-2549 CAN-2005-2550 

Multiple vulnerabilities were discovered in evolution:

CAN-2005-2549

Multiple format string vulnerabilities in Evolution allow remote attackers
to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via
(1) full vCard data, (2) contact data from remote LDAP servers, or (3) task
list data from remote servers.

CAN-2005-2550

Format string vulnerability in Evolution allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via the
calendar entries such as task lists, which are not properly handled when
the user selects the Calendars tab.

For the testing distribution (etch) this is fixed in version
2.2.3-2etch1

For the unstable distribution (sid) this is fixed in version
2.2.3-3

This upgrade is recommended if you use evolution.

The Debian testing security team does not track security issues for then
stable (sarge) and oldstable (woody) distributions. If stable is vulnerable,
the Debian security team will make an announcement once a fix is ready.
