Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Iceweasel
webbrowser, an unbranded version of the Firefox browser. The Common 
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:

   Justin Schuh discovered that a buffer overflow in the http-index-format
   parser could lead to arbitrary code execution.


   Liu Die Yu discovered an information leak through local shortcut


   Georgi Guninski, Michal Zalewski and Chris Evan discovered that
   the canvas element could be used to bypass same-origin


   It was discovered that insufficient checks in the Flash plugin glue
   code could lead to arbitrary code execution.


   Jesse Ruderman discovered that a programming error in the
   window.__proto__.__proto__ object could lead to arbitrary code


   It was discovered that crashes in the layout engine could lead to
   arbitrary code execution.


   It was discovered that crashes in the Javascript engine could lead to
   arbitrary code execution.


   It was discovered that a crash in the nsFrameManager might lead to
   the execution of arbitrary code.


   "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that the same-origin check in
   nsXMLHttpRequest::NotifyEventListeners() could be bypassed.


   Collin Jackson discovered that the -moz-binding property bypasses
   security checks on codebase principals.


   Chris Evans discovered that quote characters were improperly
   escaped in the default namespace of E4X documents.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in

For the upcoming stable distribution (lenny) and the unstable distribution
(sid), these problems have been fixed in version 3.0.4-1 of iceweasel 
and version of xulrunner. Packages for arm and mips will be
provided soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel package.
