Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no

Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Iceweasel web
browser, an unbranded version of the Firefox browser. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems:


    Jesse Ruderman and Petko D. Petkov discovered that the URI handler
    for JAR archives allows cross-site scripting.


    Several crashes in the layout engine were discovered, which might
    allow the execution of arbitrary code.


    Gregory Fleischer discovered a race condition in the handling of
    the "window.location" property, which might lead to cross-site
    request forgery.

The Mozilla products in the oldstable distribution (sarge) are no longer
supported with with security updates.

For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in

We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.
