    Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and
    derived products such as Mozilla Firefox.  The Common Vulnerabilities
    and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:
        Several vulnerabilities in the layout engine allow remote
        attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly permit them to
        execute arbitrary code. [MFSA 2006-68]
        Several vulnerabilities in the JavaScript engine allow remote
        attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly permit them to
        execute arbitrary code. [MFSA 2006-68]
        A bug in the js_dtoa function allows remote attackers to cause a
        denial of service. [MFSA 2006-68]
        "shutdown" discovered a vulnerability that allows remote attackers
        to gain privileges and install malicious code via the watch
        JavaScript function. [MFSA 2006-70]
        Steven Michaud discovered a programming bug that allows remote
        attackers to cause a denial of service. [MFSA 2006-71]
        "moz_bug_r_a4" reported that the src attribute of an IMG element
        could be used to inject JavaScript code. [MFSA 2006-72]
    For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
    version 1.0.4-2sarge15.
    For the testing and unstable distribution (sid and etch) these
    problems have been fixed in version of iceweasel.
    We recommend that you upgrade your firefox and iceweasel packages.
