The evolution-data-server package provides a unified backend for programs that work with contacts, tasks, and calendar information. A flaw was found in the way evolution-data-server processes certain IMAP server messages. If a user can be tricked into connecting to a malicious IMAP server it may be possible to execute arbitrary code as the user running the evolution-data-server process. (CVE-2007-3257) All users of evolution-data-server should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain a backported patch which resolves this issue.
