Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Icedove, an unbranded version of the Thunderbird mail/news client.

regenrecht discovered that incorrect pointer handling in the SVG processing code could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

regenrecht discovered that incorrect memory management in DOM processing could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

moz_bug_r_a_4 discovered a Chrome privilege escalation vulnerability in the event handler code.

Gary Kwong, Igor Bukanov, Nils and Bob Clary discovered memory corruption bugs, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

As indicated in the Lenny (oldstable) release notes, security support for the Icedove packages in the oldstable needed to be stopped before the end of the regular Lenny security maintenance life cycle. You are strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable or switch to a different mail client.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 3.0.11-1+squeeze4.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in version 3.1.12-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
