Debian DSA-2918-1 : iceweasel - security update

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 73844

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, buffer overflows, missing permission checks, out of bound reads, use-after-frees and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, privilege escalation, cross-site scripting or denial of service.

Solution

Upgrade the iceweasel packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 24.5.0esr-1~deb7u1.
