Problem-Type   : remote
Debian-specific: no
CVE ID         : CVE-2008-2798 CVE-2008-2799 CVE-2008-2800 CVE-2008-2801 CVE-2008-2802 CVE-2008-2803 CVE-2008-2805 CVE-2008-2807 CVE-2008-2808 CVE-2008-2809 CVE-2008-2811

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

CVE-2008-2798

    Devon Hubbard, Jesse Ruderman and Martijn Wargers discovered
    crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of
    arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-2799

    Igor Bukanov, Jesse Ruderman and Gary Kwong discovered crashes in
    the Javascript engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-2800

    "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered several cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.

CVE-2008-2801

    Collin Jackson and Adam Barth discovered that Javascript code
    could be executed in the context or signed JAR archives.

CVE-2008-2802

    "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that XUL documements can escalate
    privileges by accessing the pre-compiled "fastload" file.

CVE-2008-2803

    "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that missing input sanitising in the
    mozIJSSubScriptLoader.loadSubScript() function could lead to the
    execution of arbitrary code. Iceweasel itself is not affected, but
    some addons are.

CVE-2008-2805

    Claudio Santambrogio discovered that missing access validation in
    DOM parsing allows malicious web sites to force the browser to
    upload local files to the server, which could lead to information
    disclosure.

CVE-2008-2807

    Daniel Glazman discovered that a programming error in the code for
    parsing .properties files could lead to memory content being
    exposed to addons, which could lead to information disclosure.

CVE-2008-2808

    Masahiro Yamada discovered that file URLS in directory listings
    were insufficiently escaped.

CVE-2008-2809

    John G. Myers, Frank Benkstein and Nils Toedtmann discovered that
    alternate names on self-signed certificates were handled
    insufficiently, which could lead to spoofings secure connections.

CVE-2008-2811

    Greg McManus discovered discovered a crash in the block reflow
    code, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code.


For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.0.15-0etch1.

Iceweasel from the unstable distribution (sid) links dynamically
against the xulrunner library.

We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel package.

Upgrade instructions
- --------------------

wget url
        will fetch the file for you
dpkg -i file.deb
        will install the referenced file.

If you are using the apt-get package manager, use the line for
sources.list as given below:

apt-get update
        will update the internal database
apt-get upgrade
        will install corrected packages

You may use an automated update by adding the resources from the
footer to the proper configuration.
