Mandriva: Updated cairo packages to address Evolution DoS vulnerability Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Mandrake GNOME Evolution allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (persistent client crash) via an attached text file that contains "Content-Disposition: inline" in the header, and a very long line in the body, which causes the client to repeatedly crash until the e-mail message is manually removed, possibly due to a buffer overflow, as demonstrated using an XML attachment.

 Package : cairo
 Date    : March 20, 2006
 Affected: 2006.0

 Problem Description:
 
 GNOME Evolution allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service 
 (persistent client crash) via an attached text file that contains 
 "Content-Disposition: inline" in the header, and a very long line in
 the body, which causes the client to repeatedly crash until the e-mail
 message is manually removed, possibly due to a buffer overflow, as
 demonstrated using an XML attachment.
 
 The underlying issue is in libcairo, which is used by recent versions
 of Evolution for message rendering.
 
 The Corporate Desktop 3.0 version of Evolution does not use libcairo
 and is  not vulnerable to this issue.
 
 Updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
