    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Icedove, an unbranded
    version of the Thunderbird mail/news client.
    
    CVE-2011-0069 CVE-2011-0070 CVE-2011-0072 CVE-2011-0074 CVE-2011-0075 CVE-2011-0077 CVE-2011-0078 CVE-2011-0080 CVE-2011-0081
    
       "Scoobidiver", Ian Beer Bob Clary, Henri Sivonen, Marco Bonardo,
       Mats Palmgren, Jesse Ruderman, Aki Kelin and Martin Barbella 
       discovered memory corruption bugs, which may lead to the execution
       of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2011-0065 CVE-2011-0066 CVE-2011-0073
    
       "regenrecht" discovered several dangling pointer vulnerabilities,
       which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2011-0067
    
       Paul Stone discovered that Java applets could steal information
       from the autocompletion history.
    
    CVE-2011-0071
    
       Soroush Dalili discovered a directory traversal vulnerability in
       handling resource URIs.
    
    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+squeeze2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem will be fixed soon.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
