    Multiple security issues have been found in Iceweasel, Debian's version 
    of the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, 
    missing input sanitising vulnerabilities, use-after-free vulnerabilities, 
    buffer overflows and other programming errors may lead to the execution 
    of arbitrary code, privilege escalation, information leaks or 
    cross-site-scripting.
    
    We're changing the approach for security updates for Iceweasel, Icedove 
    and Iceape in stable-security: Instead of backporting security fixes, 
    we now provide releases based on the Extended Support Release branch. As 
    such, this update introduces packages based on Firefox 17 and at some 
    point in the future we will switch to the next ESR branch once ESR 17 
    has reached it's end of life.
    
    Some Xul extensions currently packaged in the Debian archive are not
    compatible with the new browser engine. Up-to-date and compatible 
    versions can be retrieved from http://addons.mozilla.org as a short 
    term solution. A solution to keep packaged extensions compatible with 
    the Mozilla releases is still being sorted out.
    
    We don't have the resources to backport security fixes to the Iceweasel 
    release in oldstable-security any longer. If you're up to the task and 
    want to help, please get in touch with This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. 
    Otherwise, we'll announce the end of  security support for Iceweasel, 
    Icedove and Iceape in Squeeze in the next update round.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 17.0.6esr-1~deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 17.0.6esr-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
