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:

CVE-2008-0412

    Jesse Ruderman, Kai Engert, Martijn Wargers, Mats Palmgren and Paul
    Nickerson discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow
    the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-0413

    Carsten Book, Wesley Garland, Igor Bukanov, "moz_bug_r_a4", "shutdown",
    Philip Taylor and "tgirmann" discovered crashes in the Javascript
    engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-0414

    "hong" and Gregory Fleisher discovered that file input focus
    vulnerabilities in the file upload control could allow information
    disclosure of local files.

CVE-2008-0415

    "moz_bug_r_a4" and Boris Zbarsky discovered discovered several
    vulnerabilities in Javascript handling, which could allow
    privilege escalation.

CVE-2008-0417

    Justin Dolske discovered that the password storage machanism could
    be abused by malicious web sites to corrupt existing saved passwords.

CVE-2008-0418

    Gerry Eisenhaur and "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that a directory
    traversal vulnerability in chrome: URI handling could lead to
    information disclosure.

CVE-2008-0419

    David Bloom discovered a race condition in the image handling of
    designMode elements, which can lead to information disclosure or
    potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-0591

    Michal Zalewski discovered that timers protecting security-sensitive
    dialogs (which disable dialog elements until a timeout is reached)
    could be bypassed by window focus changes through Javascript.

CVE-2008-0592

    It was discovered that malformed content declarations of saved
    attachments could prevent a user in the opening local files
    with a ".txt" file name, resulting in minor denial of service.

CVE-2008-0593

    Martin Straka discovered that insecure stylesheet handling during
    redirects could lead to information disclosure.

CVE-2008-0594

    Emil Ljungdahl and Lars-Olof Moilanen discovered that phishing
    protections could be bypassed with 
elements. For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in version 2.0.0.12-0etch1.
