Debian: Security update for Icedove

Mariusz Mlynski discovered that websites could open a download dialog - which has “open” as the default action -, while a user presses the ENTER key. Benjamin Smedberg, Bob Clary and Jesse Ruderman discovered crashes in the rendering engine, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Mark Kaplan discovered an integer underflow in the javascript engine, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code. Boris Zbarsky discovered that incorrect handling of the window.location object could lead to bypasses of the same-origin policy. Ian Graham discovered that multiple Location headers might lead to CRLF injection. 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+squeeze5.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.1.15-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
