    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Iceweasel web
    browser, an unbranded version of the Firefox browser. The Common
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2009-3079
    
       "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that a programming error in the FeedWriter
       module could lead to the execution of Javascript code with elevated
       privileges.
    
    CVE-2009-1310
    
       Prateek Saxena discovered a cross-site scripting vulnerability in
       the MozSearch plugin interface.
    
    For the stable distribution (lenny), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.0.6-3.
    
    As indicated in the Etch release notes, security support for the
    Mozilla products in the oldstable distribution needed to be stopped
    before the end of the regular Etch security maintenance life cycle.
    You are strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable or switch to a still
    supported browser.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.0.14-1.
    
    For the experimental distribution, these problems have been fixed in
    version 3.5.3-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
