Debian DLA-640-1 : icedove security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 93831

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple 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.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1:45.3.0-1~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.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
