Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in Iceweasel, Debian's version of the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, use-after-free vulnerabilities, missing permission checks, incorrect memory handling and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, privilege escalation, information disclosure or cross-site request forgery.

The Iceweasel version in the oldstable distribution (squeeze) is no longer supported with security updates.

Solution

Upgrade the iceweasel packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 17.0.7esr-1~deb7u1.
