3. Problem description:

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

A format string bug was found in Evolution.  If a user tries to save a
carefully crafted meeting or appointment, arbitrary code may be executed as
the user running Evolution. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures
project has assigned the name CAN-2005-2550 to this issue.

Additionally, several other format string bugs were found in Evolution. If
a user views a malicious vCard, connects to a malicious LDAP server, or
displays a task list from a malicious remote server, arbitrary code may be
executed as the user running Evolution. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project has assigned the name CAN-2005-2549 to this issue. Please
note that this issue only affects Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

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

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.  Use Red Hat
