Debian DSA-2911-1 : icedove - security update
High Nessus Plugin ID 73657
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionMultiple security issues have been found in Icedove, Debian's version of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail and news client. Multiple memory safety errors, out of bound reads, use-after-frees and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, information disclosure or denial of service.
SolutionUpgrade the icedove packages.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 24.4.0-1~deb7u1. This updates Icedove to the Extended Support Release (ESR) branch 24. An updated and compatible version of Enigmail is included with this update.
