Updated evolution packages that fix a security bug are now available for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.
This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.
Evolution is the GNOME collection of personal information management (PIM)
A flaw was found in the way Evolution processed certain APOP authentication
requests. A remote attacker could potentially acquire certain portions of a
user's authentication credentials by sending certain responses when
evolution-data-server attempted to authenticate against an APOP server.
All users of Evolution should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch which resolves this issue.
