The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.


Several vulnerabilities have been found in the Iceape internet suite, an unbranded version of SeaMonkey.

- CVE-2012-1937 Mozilla developers discovered several memory corruption bugs, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2012-1940 Abhishek Arya discovered a use-after-free problem when working with column layout with absolute positioning in a container that changes size, which may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

- CVE-2012-1947 Abhishek Arya discovered a heap buffer overflow in utf16 to latin1 character set conversion, allowing to execute arbitrary code.
