Vigil@nce - Evolution: no TLS encryption of Sent

September 2011 by Vigil@nce

This bulletin was written by Vigil@nce : http://vigilance.fr/offer

SYNTHESIS OF THE VULNERABILITY

When the directory of sent messages is stored on a remote server, the session is not encrypted by Evolution, even if the configuration requests it.

Severity: 1/4

Creation date: 12/09/2011

IMPACTED PRODUCTS

- Unix - plateform

DESCRIPTION OF THE VULNERABILITY

The Evolution program is a messaging client. It can access to a remote IMAP mailbox through a TLS encrypted session.

The directory of sent messages can be stored locally, or on the remote IMAP server. However, the session which stores sent messages is never encrypted by TLS. An attacker can therefore capture emails, or obtain the password used to connect to the IMAP server.

When the directory of sent messages is stored on a remote server, the session is therefore not encrypted by Evolution, even if the configuration requests it.
