Package : icedove Vulnerability : several Problem type : remote Debian-specific: no CVE ID : CVE-2013-1718 CVE-2013-1722 CVE-2013-1725 CVE-2013-1730 CVE-2013-1732 CVE-2013-1735 CVE-2013-1736 CVE-2013-1737
Multiple security issues have been found in Icedove, Debian's version of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail and news client. Multiple memory safety errors and buffer overflows may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
The Icedove version in the oldstable distribution (squeeze) is no longer supported with full security updates. However, it should be noted that almost all security issues in Icedove stem from the included browser engine. These security problems only affect Icedove if scripting and HTML mails are enabled. If there are security issues specific to Icedove (e.g. a hypothetical buffer overflow in the IMAP implementation) we'll make an effort to backport such fixes to oldstable.
For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 17.0.9-1~deb7u1.
For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.
We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
