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.

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, use-after-frees and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service.
This update updates Icedove to the ESR31 series of Thunderbird. In addition Enigmail was updated to version 1.7.2-1~deb7u1 to ensure compatibility with the new upstream release.
SolutionUpgrade the icedove packages.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 31.2.0-1~deb7u1.
