Description Lubomir Kundrak 2007-03-23 11:27:36 UTC
Affects FC5, FC6

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #231478 +++

Ulf Harnhammar, Secunia Research, discovered a format string flaw in the way
evolution displays a memo's categories.  It is possible for an attacker to send
a specially crafted memo mail which could execute arbitrary code as the user
running evoluiton.  This memo must be accepted form the email, then later viewed
by the victim.  The attack requires a fair amount of user interaction to be
successful.
