Debian DSA-3050-1 : iceweasel - security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 78563

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, use-after-frees and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, denial of service, the bypass of the same-origin policy or a loss of privacy.

This update updates Iceweasel to the ESR31 series of Firefox. The new release introduces a new user interface.

In addition, this update also disables SSLv3.

Solution

Upgrade the iceweasel packages.

For the stable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 31.2.0esr-2~deb7u1.
