Multiple security issues have been found in Icedove, Debian's version of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail and news client: multiple memory safety errors and buffer overflows may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your icedove packages.
