Debian DSA-3520-1 : icedove - security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 90031
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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 client: Multiple memory safety errors, integer overflows, buffer overflows and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the icedove packages.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 38.7.0-1~deb7u1.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 38.7.0-1~deb8u1.
