    Package        : icedove
    CVE ID         : CVE-2016-2806
    
    Multiple security issues have been found in Icedove, Debian's version of
    the Mozilla Thunderbird mail client: Multiple memory safety errors may
    lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service.
    
    Debian follows the extended support releases (ESR) of Thunderbird. Support
    for the 38.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now
    following the 45.x releases.
    
    For the stable distribution (jessie), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:45.1.0-1~deb8u1.
    
    For the testing distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed
    in version 1:45.1.0-1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), this problem has been fixed in
    version 1:45.1.0-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
