    Package        : enigmail
    Vulnerability  : programming error
    Problem type   : local (remote)
    Debian-specific: no
    CVE ID         : CAN-2005-3256
    CERT advisory  : VU#805121
    Debian Bug     : 335731
    
    A bug has been discovered in enigmail, GPG support for Mozilla
    MailNews and Mozilla Thunderbird, that can lead to the encryption of
    mail with the wrong public key, hence, potential disclosure of
    confidential data to others.
    
    The old stable distribution (woody) does not contain enigmail packages.
    
    For the stable distribution (sarge) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.91-4sarge2.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) this problem has been fixed in
    version 0.93-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your enigmail packages.
