    Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Icedove, Debian's
    variant of the Mozilla Thunderbird code base.
    
    CVE-2011-3670
    	Icedove does not not properly enforce the IPv6 literal address
    	syntax, which allows remote attackers to obtain sensitive
    	information by making XMLHttpRequest calls through a proxy and
    	reading the error messages.
    
    CVE-2012-0442
    	Memory corruption bugs could cause Icedove to crash or
      	possibly execute arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2012-0444
    	Icedove does not properly initialize nsChildView data
    	structures, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of
    	service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly
    	execute arbitrary code via a crafted Ogg Vorbis file.
    
    CVE-2012-0449
    	Icedove allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    	(memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute
    	arbitrary code via a malformed XSLT stylesheet that is
    	embedded in a document
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 3.0.11-1+squeeze7.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
