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.
