Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Icedove, an unbranded version of the Thunderbird mail/news client. “regenrecht” discovered two use-after-frees in SVG processing, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. “regenrecht” discovered a use-after-free in XUL processing, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. David Chan discovered that cookies were insufficiently isolated. Chris Rohlf and Yan Ivnitskiy discovered an integer overflow in the Javascript engine, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Martin Barbella discovered a use-after-free in XUL processing, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Several memory corruption bugs have been discovered, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Luke Wagner and Gary Kwong discovered memory corruption bugs, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

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+squeeze3.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1.11-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
