    Several vulnerabilities have been found in the Iceape internet suite,
    an unbranded version of Seamonkey:
    
    CVE-2012-1948
    
      Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, and Bill McCloskey
      identified several memory safety problems that may lead to the
      execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2012-1954
    
      Abhishek Arya discovered a use-after-free problem in nsDocument::AdoptNode
      that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2012-1967
    
      moz_bug_r_a4 discovered that in certain cases, javascript:: URLs can
      be executed so that scripts can escape the JavaScript sandbox and run
      with elevated privileges.  This can lead to arbitrary code execution.
    
    For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
    version 2.0.11-14.
    
    For the unstable (sid) and testing (wheezy) distribution, this problem
    will be fixed soon.
    
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your iceape packages.
