Debian DSA-2788-1 : iceweasel - several vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 70722

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, and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

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 17.0.10esr-1~deb7u1.
