    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Icedove
    mail client, an unbranded version of the Thunderbird mail client. The
    Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
    Dan Kaminsky and Moxie Marlinspike discovered that icedove does not
    properly handle a '\0' character in a domain name in the subject's
    Common Name (CN) field of an X.509 certificate (MFSA 2009-42).
    Moxie Marlinspike reported a heap overflow vulnerability in the code
    that handles regular expressions in certificate names (MFSA 2009-43).
    monarch2020 discovered an integer overflow n a base64 decoding function
    (MFSA 2010-07).
    Josh Soref discovered a crash in the BinHex decoder (MFSA 2010-07).
    Carsten Book reported a crash in the JavaScript engine (MFSA 2010-07).
    Ludovic Hirlimann reported a crash indexing some messages with
    attachments, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code
    (MFSA 2010-07).
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    Due to a problem with the archive system it is not possible to release
    all architectures. The missing architectures will be installed into the
    archive once they become available.
    For the testing distribution squeeze and the unstable distribution (sid),
    these problems will be fixed soon.
    We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
