                     CVE-2014-1514
    
    Multiple security issues have been found in Icedove, Debian's version of
    the Mozilla Thunderbird mail and news client. Multiple memory safety 
    errors, out of bound reads, use-after-frees and other implementation 
    errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, information 
    disclosure or denial of service.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 24.4.0-1~deb7u1. This updates Icedove to the Extended Support
    Release (ESR) branch 24. An updated and compatible version of Enigmail 
    is included with this update.
    
    For the testing distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in
    version 24.4.0esr-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 24.4.0esr-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
