Debian Security Advisory DSA-2720-1 security ( -at -) debian.org

Package : icedove

Vulnerability : several

Problem type : remote

Debian-specific: no

CVE ID : CVE-2013-1682 CVE-2013-1684 CVE-2013-1685 CVE-2013-1686

CVE-2013-1687 CVE-2013-1690 CVE-2013-1692 CVE-2013-1693

CVE-2013-1694 CVE-2013-1697


Multiple security issues have been found in Icedove, Debian's version

of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail and news client. Multiple memory safety

errors, use-after-free vulnerabilities, missing permission checks, incorrect

memory handling and other implementaton errors may lead to the execution

of arbitrary code, privilege escalation, information disclosure or

cross-site request forgery.


As already announced for Iceweasel: We're changing the approach for

security updates for Icedove in stable-security: Instead of

backporting security fixes, we now provide releases based on the

Extended Support Release branch. As such, this update introduces

packages based on Thunderbird 17 and at some point in the future we

will switch to the next ESR branch once ESR 17 has reached it's end

of life.


Some Icedove extensions currently packaged in the Debian archive are

not compatible with the new browser engine. Up-to-date and compatible

versions can be retrieved from http://addons.mozilla.org as a short

term solution.


An updated and compatible version of enigmail is included with this



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 17.0.7-1~deb7u1.


For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in

version 17.0.7-1.


We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
