Debian: Security update for Iceape

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.

Updated packages are available from security.debian.org.

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.

 that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code.

CVE-2012-1967

 moz_bug_r_a4 discovered that in certain cases, javascript:: URLs can
 be executed so that scripts can escape the JavaScript sandbox and run

For the stable distribution (squeeze), this problem has been fixed in
