Package : evolution Version : 3.12.9~git20141130.241663-1+deb8u1 CVE ID : CVE-2018-15587 Debian Bug : 924616

Hanno Böck discovered that GNOME Evolution is prone to OpenPGP signatures being spoofed for arbitrary messages using a specially crafted HTML email. This issue was mitigated by moving the security bar with encryption and signature information above the message headers.

For Debian 8 "Jessie", this problem has been fixed in version 3.12.9~git20141130.241663-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your evolution packages.
