    Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Iceweasel web
    browser, an unbranded version of the Firefox browser. The Common 
    Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:
    
    CVE-2007-1362
    
        Nicolas Derouet discovered that Iceweasel performs insufficient 
        validation of cookies, which could lead to denial of service.
    
    CVE-2007-2867
     
        Boris Zbarsky, Eli Friedman, Georgi Guninski, Jesse Ruderman, Martijn
        Wargers and Olli Pettay discovered crashes in the layout engine, which
        might allow the execution of arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2007-2868
    
        Brendan Eich, Igor Bukanov, Jesse Ruderman, moz_bug_r_a4 and Wladimir Palant
        discovered crashes in the javascript engine, which might allow the execution of
        arbitrary code.
    
    CVE-2007-2869
    
        "Marcel" discovered that malicous web sites can cause massive
        ressource comsumption through the auto completion feature, resulting
        in denial of service.
    
    CVE-2007-2870
    
        "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that adding an event listener through the
         addEventListener() function allows cross-site scripting.
    
    CVE-2007-2871
    
        Chris Thomas discovered that XUL popups can can be abused for spoofing or
        phishing attacks.
    
    Fixes for the oldstable distribution (sarge) are not available. While there
    will be another round of security updates for Mozilla products, Debian doesn't
    have the ressources to backport further security fixes to the old Mozilla
    products. You're strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable as soon as possible.
    
    For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in version
    2.0.0.4-0etch1. A build for the Alpha architecture is not yet available, it will
    be provided later.
    
    For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in version
    2.0.0.4-1.
    
    We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
