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 lt;divgt; elements.


For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.0.12-0etch1.

The Mozilla products from the old stable distribution (sarge) are no
longer supported with security updates.

We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel packages.

Upgrade instructions
