Problem description

A format string error in the "write_html()" function in calendar/gui/
e-cal-component-memo-preview.c when displaying a memo's categories can
potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code via a specially
crafted shared memo containing format specifiers.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.
