Description Josh Bressers 2006-06-05 16:16:25 EDT
Text taken from the CVE id.

Evolution 2.2.x and 2.3.x in GNOME 2.7 and 2.8, when "load images if
sender in addressbook" is enabled, allows remote attackers to cause a
denial of service (persistent crash) via a crafted "From" header that
triggers an assert error in camel-internet-address.c when a null
pointer is used.

This report targets the FC3 or FC4 products, which have now been EOL'd.

Could you please check that it still applies to a current Fedora release, and
either update the target product or close it ?

Comment 2 Matthew Barnes 2007-08-31 10:49:55 EDT
Josh, any idea if this is still relevant in F7 or Rawhide?

I didn't see any ChangeLog entries mentioning the issue directly, but there's
been a lot of improvements to Camel since June 2006.
Comment 3 Matthew Barnes 2007-08-31 10:55:20 EDT
This was originally filed against FC4.  Moving to "devel" until I can determine
its current status.
Comment 4 Matthew Barnes 2007-08-31 11:02:56 EDT
This CVE was fixed in Evolution 2.4.x.  Closing.
