Debian: New icedove packages fix several vulnerabilities Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Debian Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Icedove mail client, an unbranded version of the Thunderbird client. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems. Gatan Leurent discovered a cryptographical weakness in APOP authentication, which reduces the required efforts for an MITM attack to intercept a password. The update enforces stricter validation, which prevents this attack.

Package        : icedove
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-1558 CVE-2007-2867 CVE-2007-2868

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Icedove mail client,
an unbranded version of the Thunderbird client. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project identifies the following problems:


    Gatan Leurent discovered a cryptographical weakness in APOP
    authentication, which reduces the required efforts for an MITM attack
    to intercept a password. The update enforces stricter validation, which
    prevents this attack.

    Boris Zbarsky, Eli Friedman, Georgi Guninski, Jesse Ruderman, Martijn
    Wargers and Olli Pettay discovered crashes in the layout engine, which
    might allow the execution of arbitrary code.


    Brendan Eich, Igor Bukanov, Jesse Ruderman, moz_bug_r_a4 and Wladimir Palant
    discovered crashes in the Javascript engine, which might allow the execution of
    arbitrary code. Generally, enabling Javascript in Icedove is not recommended.

Fixes for the oldstable distribution (sarge) are not available. While there
will be another round of security updates for Mozilla products, Debian doesn't
have the ressources to backport further security fixes to the old Mozilla
products. You're strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable as soon as possible.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in version

The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.

Upgrade Instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
