The previous update for iceweasel in DSA-3050-1 did not contain builds for the armhf architecture due to an error in the Debian packaging specific to the armhf build. This update corrects that problem. For reference, the original advisory text follows.

The previous update for iceweasel in DSA-3050-1 did not contain builds
for the armhf architecture due to an error in the Debian packaging
specific to the armhf build. This update corrects that problem. For
reference, the original advisory text follows.

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), this problem has been fixed
in version 31.2.0esr-3~deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
