Debian DSA-3832-1 : icedove - security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 99545
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 Thunderbird, which may may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or information leaks.

With this update, the Icedove packages are de-branded back to the official Mozilla branding. With the removing of the Debian branding the packages are also renamed back to the official names used by Mozilla.

The Thunderbird package is using a different default profile folder, the default profile folder is now '\$(HOME)/.thunderbird'. The users profile folder, that was used in Icedove, will get migrated to the new profile folder on the first start, that can take a little bit more time.

Please read README.Debian for getting more information about the changes.

Solution

Upgrade the icedove packages.

For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1:45.8.0-3~deb8u1.
