Debian DSA-2924-1 : icedove - security update

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 73869

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple 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.

Solution

Upgrade the icedove packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 24.5.0-1~deb7u1.
