Red Hat: Updated evolution and evolution-data-server packages fix multiple security issues

Evolution is the integrated collection of e-mail, calendaring, contact management, communications, and personal information management (PIM) tools for the GNOME desktop environment. Evolution did not properly check the Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions (S/MIME) signatures used for public key encryption and signing of e-mail messages. An attacker could use this flaw to spoof a signature by modifying the text of the e-mail message displayed to the user. It was discovered that evolution did not properly validate NTLM (NT LAN Manager) authentication challenge packets. A malicious server using NTLM authentication could cause evolution to disclose portions of its memory or crash during user authentication. Multiple integer overflow flaws which could cause heap-based buffer overflows were found in the Base64 encoding routines used by evolution and evolution-data-server. This could cause evolution, or an application using evolution-data-server, to crash, or, possibly, execute an arbitrary code when large untrusted data blocks were Base64-encoded. Updated packages are available from updates.redhat.com.

1. Summary:

Updated evolution and evolution-data-server packages that fixes multiple
security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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. Description:

Evolution is the integrated collection of e-mail, calendaring, contact
management, communications, and personal information management (PIM) tools
for the GNOME desktop environment.

Evolution Data Server provides a unified back-end for applications which
interact with contacts, task and calendar information. Evolution Data
Server was originally developed as a back-end for Evolution, but is now
used by multiple other applications.

Evolution did not properly check the Secure/Multipurpose Internet Mail
Extensions (S/MIME) signatures used for public key encryption and signing
of e-mail messages. An attacker could use this flaw to spoof a signature by
modifying the text of the e-mail message displayed to the user. (CVE-2009-0547)

It was discovered that evolution did not properly validate NTLM (NT LAN
Manager) authentication challenge packets. A malicious server using NTLM
authentication could cause evolution to disclose portions of its memory or
crash during user authentication. (CVE-2009-0582)

Multiple integer overflow flaws which could cause heap-based buffer
overflows were found in the Base64 encoding routines used by evolution and
evolution-data-server. This could cause evolution, or an application using
evolution-data-server, to crash, or, possibly, execute an arbitrary code
when large untrusted data blocks were Base64-encoded. (CVE-2009-0587)

All users of evolution and evolution-data-server are advised to upgrade to
these updated packages, which contain backported patches to correct these
issues. All running instances of evolution and evolution-data-server must
be restarted for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via Red Hat Network.  Details on how to use
the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
http://kbase.redhat.com/faq/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

484925 - CVE-2009-0547 evolution-data-server: S/MIME signatures are considered to be valid even for modified messages (MITM)
487685 - CVE-2009-0582 evolution-data-server: insufficient checking of NTLM authentication challenge packets
488226 - CVE-2009-0587 evolution-data-server: integer overflow in base64 encoding functions
