Generate a security patch for Evolution CVE-2018-15587

Reported by: Douglas R. Reno Owned by: Douglas R. Reno
Priority: high Milestone: 8.4
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


I was just emailed privately by an Arch Linux developer regarding CVE-2018-15587 in Evolution, and two vulnerabilities in GDM (I'll file a separate ticket for that).

GNOME Evolution through 3.28.2 is prone to OpenPGP signatures being spoofed for arbitrary messages using a specially crafted email that contains a valid signature from the entity to be impersonated as an attachment.
You can find a patch here:


There is a possibility that you might not be able to backport it to 3.30 though, but I figured I would give you a heads up.
