    CVE-2011-2995
    
       Benjamin Smedberg, Bob Clary and Jesse Ruderman discovered crashes
       in the rendering engine, which could lead to the execution of

    CVE-2011-2998
    
       Mark Kaplan discovered an integer underflow in the javascript
       engine, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2011-2999
    
       Boris Zbarsky discovered that incorrect handling of the

    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+squeeze5.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.1.15-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
