Alexander Reichle-Schmehl uploaded new packages for iceweasel which fixed the following security problems:


The startDocumentLoad function in browser/base/content/browser.js in Mozilla Firefox 3.5.x before 3.5.11 and 3.6.x before 3.6.7, and SeaMonkey before 2.0.6, does not properly implement the Same Origin Policy in certain circumstances related to the about:blank document and a document that is currently loading, which allows (1) remote web servers to conduct spoofing attacks via vectors involving a 204 (aka No Content) status code, and allows (2) remote attackers to conduct spoofing attacks via vectors involving a window.stop call.

For the lenny-backports distribution the problems have been fixed in version 3.5.11-1~bpo50+1.

For the squeeze and sid distributions the problems have been fixed in version 3.5.11-1.

Upgrade instructions

If you don't use pinning (see [1]) you have to update the package manually via "apt-get -t lenny-backports install <packagelist>" with the packagelist of your installed packages affected by this update. [1] <http://backports.org/dokuwiki/doku.php?id=instructions>

We recommend to pin the backports repository to 200 so that new versions of installed backports will be installed automatically.
