    Package : evolution
    Vulnerability : integer overflow
    Problem-Type : local
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID : CAN-2005-0102
    BugTraq ID : 12354

    Max Vozeler discovered an integer overflow in a helper application
    inside of Evolution, a free grouware suite. A local attacker could
    cause the setuid root helper to execute arbitrary code with elevated
    privileges.

    For the stable distribution (woody) this problem has been fixed in
    version 1.0.5-1woody2.

    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.3-1.2.

    We recommend that you upgrade your evolution package.

    Upgrade Instructions
    - --------------------

            will fetch the file for you
    dpkg -i file.deb
            will install the referenced file.

    sources.list as given below:

    apt-get update
            will update the internal database
