Debian DSA-2858-1 : iceweasel - several vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 72438

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-frees, too-verbose error messages and missing permission checks may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, the bypass of security checks or information disclosure. This update also addresses security issues in the bundled version of the NSS crypto library.

This update updates Iceweasel to the ESR24 series of Firefox.

Solution

Upgrade the iceweasel packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 24.3.0esr-1~deb7u1.
