  Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDVSA-2008:111  http://www.mandriva.com/security/
  Package : evolution Date : June 10, 2008 Affected: 2008.0, 2008.1
_______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:  

 Alan Rad Pop of Secunia Research discovered the following two  vulnerabilities in Evolution:  

 Evolution did not properly validate timezone data when processing  iCalendar attachments. If a user disabled the Itip Formatter plugin  and viewed a crafted iCalendar attachment, an attacker could cause  a denial of service or potentially execute arbitrary code with the  user's privileges (CVE-2008-1108).  

 Evolution also did not properly validate the DESCRIPTION field when  processing iCalendar attachments. If a user were tricked into  accepting a crafted iCalendar attachment and replied to it from  the calendar window, an attacker could cause a denial of service  or potentially execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges  (CVE-2008-1109).    In addition, Matej Cepl found that Evolution did not properly validate  date fields when processing iCalendar attachments, which could lead to  a denial of service if the user viewed a crafted iCalendar attachment  with the Itip Formatter plugin disabled.  

 Mandriva Linux has the Itip Formatter plugin enabled by default.  

 The updated packages have been patched to prevent these issues.
