Ubuntu 6.06 LTS / 7.10 : evolution-data-server vulnerability (USN-733-1)

Description

It was discovered that the Base64 encoding functions in evolution-data-server did not properly handle large strings. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted image file, or tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could possibly execute arbitrary code with user privileges.

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.
