critical Nessus Plugin ID 67101
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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.
