Ubuntu 4.10 : evolution vulnerability (USN-69-1)

Reporter Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2005-2019 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2006-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Description

Max Vozeler discovered an integer overflow in camel-lock-helper. An user-supplied length value was not validated, so that a value of -1 caused a buffer allocation of 0 bytes; this buffer was then filled by an arbitrary amount of user-supplied data.

A local attacker or a malicious POP3 server could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with root privileges (because camel-lock-helper is installed as setuid root).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
