Multiple security issues have been found in Iceweasel, Debian's version
of the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors,
use-after-free vulnerabilities, missing permission checks, incorrect
memory handling and other implementaton errors may lead to the execution
of arbitrary code, privilege escalation, information disclosure or
cross-site request forgery.

The iceweasel version in the oldstable distribution (squeeze) is no
