Debian DLA-519-1 : icedove security update
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 91770
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security update.
DescriptionMultiple security issues have been found in Icedove, Debian's version of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail client: Multiple memory safety errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service.
Debian follows the extended support releases (ESR) of Thunderbird.
Support for the 38.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now following the 45.x releases.
For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 45.1.0-1~deb7u1.
We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpgrade the affected packages.
