Date Reported:
26 Apr 2019
Affected Packages:
Security database references:
In the Debian bugtracking system: Bug 924616.
In Mitre's CVE dictionary: CVE-2018-15587.
More information:

Hanno Böck discovered that GNOME Evolution is prone to OpenPGP signatures being spoofed for arbitrary messages using a specially crafted HTML email. This issue was mitigated by moving the security bar with encryption and signature information above the message headers.

For Debian 8 Jessie, this problem has been fixed in version 3.12.9~git20141130.241663-1+deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your evolution packages.
