Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and derived products such as Mozilla Firefox. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities:
Tomas Kempinsky discovered that malformed FTP server responses could lead to denial of service.
Ulrich Kühn discovered that the correction for a cryptographic flaw in the handling of PKCS-1 certificates was incomplete, which allows the forgery of certificates.
Jesse Ruderman and Martijn Wargers discovered several crashes in the layout engine, which might also allow execution of arbitrary code.
This update also adresses several crashes, which could be triggered by malicious websites and fixes a regression introduced in the previous Mozilla update.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.4-2sarge13.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in the current iceweasel package 2.0+dfsg-1.
