    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Icedove, an unbranded
    version of the Thunderbird mail/news client.
    
    CVE-2011-0084
    
       "regenrecht" discovered that incorrect pointer handling in the SVG
       processing code could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2011-2378
    
       "regenrecht" discovered that incorrect memory management in DOM
       processing could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2011-2981
    
       "moz_bug_r_a_4" discovered a Chrome privilege escalation
       vulnerability in the event handler code.
    
    CVE-2011-2982
    
       Gary Kwong, Igor Bukanov, Nils and Bob Clary discovered memory
       corruption bugs, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2011-2983
    
       "shutdown" discovered an information leak in the handling of
       RegExp.input.
    
    CVE-2011-2984
    
       "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered a Chrome privilege escalation vulnerability.
    
    
    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+squeeze4.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.12-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
