                 CVE-2009-3072 CVE-2009-3075 CVE-2010-0163

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


Dan Kaminsky and Moxie Marlinspike discovered that icedove does not
properly handle a '\0' character in a domain name in the subject's
Common Name (CN) field of an X.509 certificate (MFSA 2009-42).


Moxie Marlinspike reported a heap overflow vulnerability in the code
that handles regular expressions in certificate names (MFSA 2009-43).


monarch2020 discovered an integer overflow n a base64 decoding function
(MFSA 2010-07).


Josh Soref discovered a crash in the BinHex decoder (MFSA 2010-07).


Carsten Book reported a crash in the JavaScript engine (MFSA 2010-07).


Ludovic Hirlimann reported a crash indexing some messages with
attachments, which could lead to the execution of arbitrary code
(MFSA 2010-07).

For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in

Due to a problem with the archive system it is not possible to release
all architectures. The missing architectures will be installed into the
archive once they become available.

For the testing distribution squeeze and the unstable distribution (sid),
these problems 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
