Description

Several vulnerabilities have been found in the Iceape internet suite, an unbranded version of Seamonkey:

Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, and Bill McCloskey identified several memory safety problems that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

Abhishek Arya discovered a use-after-free problem in nsDocument::AdoptNode that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

moz_bug_r_a4 discovered that in certain cases, javascript: URLs can be executed so that scripts can escape the JavaScript sandbox and run with elevated privileges. This can lead to arbitrary code execution.

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in version 2.0.11-14.

For the unstable (sid) and testing (wheezy) distribution, this problem will be fixed soon.

We recommend that you upgrade your iceape packages.
