New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7
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, buffer overflows, missing permission checks, out of bound reads, use-after-frees and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, privilege escalation, cross-site scripting or denial of service.
SolutionUpgrade the icedove packages.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 24.5.0-1~deb7u1.
