Evolution is the GNOME collection of personal information management (PIM)
tools.

A format string flaw was found in the way Evolution displayed encrypted
mail content. If a user opened a carefully crafted mail message, arbitrary
code could be executed as the user running Evolution. (CVE-2008-0072)

All users of Evolution should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain a backported patch which resolves this issue.

Red Hat would like to thank Ulf Härnhammar of Secunia Research for finding
and reporting this issue.
