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


   Roberto Suggi Liverani discovered that the sanitising performed by
   ParanoidFragmentSink was incomplete.

   calls could lead to attackers forcing acceptance of a confirmation

CVE-2011-0054, CVE-2010-0056

   Christian Holler discovered buffer overflows in the Javascript engine,
   which could allow the execution of arbitrary code.


   "regenrecht" and Igor Bukanov discovered a use-after-free error in the
   JSON-Implementation, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.


   Daniel Kozlowski discovered that incorrect memory handling the web workers
   implementation could 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+squeeze1.

For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
version 3.0.11-2.

We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
