Synopsis

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

Description

Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Iceweasel, a web browser based on Firefox. The included XULRunner library provides rendering services for several other applications included in Debian.

The reported vulnerabilities could lead to the execution of arbitrary code or the bypass of content-loading restrictions via the location object.

Solution

Upgrade the iceweasel packages.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), these problems have been fixed in version 3.5.16-18.
