Debian DSA-3092-1 : icedove - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 79806

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, use-after-frees and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, the bypass of security restrictions or denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the icedove packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 31.3.0-1~deb7u1.

For the upcoming stable distribution (jessie), these problems will be fixed soon.
