Updated evolution-data-server packages that fix two bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The evolution-data-server packages provide a unified back end for applications which interact with contacts, tasks and calendar information. Evolution Data Server was originally developed as a back end for the Evolution information management application, but is now used by various other applications.
- The Evolution client could not connect to a mail server using the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol when the server had SSL disabled due to the POODLE vulnerability. With this update, the Evolution Data Server has been modified to also connect using the Transport Layer Security (TLSv1) protocol, thus fixing this bug.
- Previously, the e-calendar-factory process did not terminate automatically when the user logged out of the graphical desktop environment, and e-calendar-factory thus redundantly consumed system resources. This update fixes the underlying code, which prevents this problem from occurring.
Users of evolution-data-server are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix these bugs.
