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-2008-0016

Justin Schuh, Tom Cross and Peter Williams discovered a buffer
overflow in the parser for UTF-8 URLs, which may lead to the
execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-3835

"moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that the same-origin check in
nsXMLDocument::OnChannelRedirect() could by bypassed.

CVE-2008-3836

"moz_bug_r_a4" discovered that several vulnerabilities in
feedWriter could lead to Chrome privilege escalation.

CVE-2008-3837

Paul Nickerson discovered that an attacker could move windows
during a mouse click, resulting in unwanted action triggered by
drag-and-drop.

CVE-2008-4058

"moz_bug_r_a4" discovered a vulnerability which can result in
Chrome privilege escalation through XPCNativeWrappers.

CVE-2008-4059

"moz_bug_r_a4" discovered a vulnerability which can result in
Chrome privilege escalation through XPCNativeWrappers.

CVE-2008-4060

Olli Pettay and "moz_bug_r_a4" discovered a Chrome privilege
escalation vulnerability in XSLT handling.

CVE-2008-4061

Jesse Ruderman discovered a crash in the layout engine, which might
allow the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-4062

Igor Bukanov, Philip Taylor, Georgi Guninski and Antoine Labour
discovered crashes in the Javascript engine, which might allow the
execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2008-4065

Dave Reed discovered that some Unicode byte order marks are
stripped from Javascript code before execution, which can result in
code being executed, which were otherwise part of a quoted string.

CVE-2008-4066

Gareth Heyes discovered that some Unicode surrogate characters are
ignored by the HTML parser.

CVE-2008-4067

Boris Zbarsky discovered that resource: URls allow directory
traversal when using URL-encoded slashes.

CVE-2008-4068

Georgi Guninski discovered that resource: URLs could bypass local
access restrictions.

CVE-2008-4069

Billy Hoffman discovered that the XBM decoder could reveal
uninitialised memory.

For the stable distribution (etch), these problems have been fixed in
version 2.0.0.17-0etch1. Packages for hppa will be provided later.

For the unstable distribution (sid), these problems have been fixed in
version 3.0.3 of iceweasel and 1.9.0.3-1 of xulrunner.

We recommend that you upgrade your iceweasel package.
