"'DrWhax' of the Tails project reported that Claws Mail is missing
range checks in some text conversion functions. A remote attacker
could exploit this to run arbitrary code under the account of a user
that receives a message from them using Claws Mail.

CVE-2015-8614

There were no checks on the output length for conversions between JIS
(ISO-2022-JP) and EUC-JP, between JIS and UTF-8, and from Shift_JIS to
EUC-JP.

CVE-2015-8708

The original fix for CVE-2015-8614 was incomplete.

For the oldoldstable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been
fixed in version 3.7.6-4+squeeze2.

For the oldstable distribution (wheezy) and the stable distribution
(jessie), this will be fixed soon. These versions were built with
hardening features that make this issue harder to exploit.

block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted
to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without
introducing additional issues."
