Description Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-02-26 08:41:37 EST
Thomas Kristensen discovered a bitmap file that would cause the
Evolution mail reader to crash.  This issue was caused by a flaw that
affects versions of the gdk-pixbuf package prior to 0.20.  To exmploit
this a remote attacker could send via email a carefully crafted BMP
file to a victim which would cause Evolution to crash.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the
name CAN-2004-0111 to this issue.

Note: In Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3, Evolution does not use the
standalone gdk-pixbuf package and is not subject to this issue,
however other applications that may use gdk-pixbuf are still affected.

Embargoed until March 10 2004
Will upgrade to gdk-pixbuf > 0.20
Comment 1 Mark J. Cox (Product Security) 2004-03-08 07:35:29 EST
Note that Evolution is not shipped for for Red Hat Linux 2.1,
therefore exploitation would require some other package that relies on
gdk-pixbuf to be run.  Errata in progress, due to low risk may be
delayed until after March 10th.
