<description>
<p>
Max Vozeler discovered an integer overflow in the
camel-lock-helper application, which is installed as setgid mail by
default.
</p>
</description>
<impact type="high">
<p>
A local attacker could exploit this vulnerability to execute
malicious code with the privileges of the 'mail' group. A remote
attacker could also setup a malicious POP server to execute arbitrary
code when an Evolution user connects to it.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Evolution users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=mail-client/evolution-2.0.2-r1&quot;</code>
</resolution>
