Debian DSA-3333-1 : iceweasel - security update
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 85356
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionMultiple security issues have been found in Iceweasel, Debian's version of the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, integer overflows, buffer overflows, use-after-frees and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, bypass of the same-origin policy or denial of service.
Debian follows the extended support releases (ESR) of Firefox. Support for the 31.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now following the 38.x releases.
SolutionUpgrade the iceweasel packages.
For the oldstable distribution (wheezy), these problems have been fixed in version 38.2.0esr-1~deb7u1.
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 38.2.0esr-1~deb8u1.
