Package        : iceweasel
Vulnerability  : several
Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2007-1362 CVE-2007-2867 CVE-2007-2868 CVE-2007-2869 CVE-2007-2870 CVE-2007-2871

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:


    Nicolas Derouet discovered that Iceweasel performs insufficient 
    validation of cookies, which could lead to denial of service.

    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.


    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.


    "Marcel" discovered that malicous web sites can cause massive
    ressource comsumption through the auto completion feature, resulting
    in denial of service.


    "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that adding an event listener through the
     addEventListener() function allows cross-site scripting.


    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 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

We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
