Package        : icedove
Vulnerability  : several
Problem type   : local (remote)
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2011-3647 CVE-2011-3648 CVE-2011-3650

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Icedove, a mail client
based on Thunderbird.

        The JSSubScriptLoader does not properly handle
        XPCNativeWrappers during calls to the loadSubScript method in
        an add-on, which makes it easier for remote attackers to gain
        privileges via a crafted web site that leverages certain
        unwrapping behavior.

	A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability allows remote
	attackers to inject arbitrary web script or HTML via crafted
	text with Shift JIS encoding.

        Iceweasel does not properly handle JavaScript files that
	contain many functions, which allows user-assisted remote
	attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and
	application crash) or possibly have unspecified other impact
	via a crafted file that is accessed by debugging APIs, as
	demonstrated by Firebug.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed
in version 3.0.11-1+squeeze6.

For the testing distribution (wheezy) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.1.15-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
