    CVE ID         : CVE-2015-0817 CVE-2015-0818
    
    Multiple security issues have been found in Iceweasel, Debian's version
    of the Mozilla Firefox web browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and
    Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2015-0817
    
        ilxu1a reported a flaw in Mozilla's implementation of typed array
        bounds checking in JavaScript just-in-time compilation (JIT) and its
        management of bounds checking for heap access. This flaw can be
        leveraged into the reading and writing of memory allowing for
        arbitary code execution on the local system.
    
    CVE-2015-0818
    
        Mariusz Mlynski discovered a method to run arbitrary scripts in a
        privileged context. This bypassed the same-origin policy protections
        by using a flaw in the processing of SVG format content navigation.
    
    For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in
    version 31.5.3esr-1~deb7u1.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
    version 31.5.3esr-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
