    Multiple security issues have been found in Iceweasel, Debian's version 
    of the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, buffer
    overflows, use-after-frees and other implementation errors may lead to 
    the execution of arbitrary code, denial of service, the bypass of the
    same-origin policy or a loss of privacy.
    
    This update updates Iceweasel to the ESR31 series of Firefox. The new
    release introduces a new user interface.
    
    In addition, this update also disables SSLv3.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 31.2.0esr-2~deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 31.2.0esr-1.
    
    For the experimental distribution, these problems have been fixed in
    version 33.0-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
