Evolution is the mail client of the GNOME desktop environment.
Alin Rad Pop (Secunia Research) reported two vulnerabilities in Evolution:
A remote attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted iCalendar attachment, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Evolution.
