Technical Details:
Several remote vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Iceape internet suite, an unbranded version of the Seamonkey Internet Suite. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2007-1362 Nicolas Derouet discovered that Iceape performs insufficient validation of cookies, which could lead to denial of service. CVE-2007-1558 Gatan Leurent discovered a cryptographical weakness in APOP authentication, which reduces the required efforts for an MITM attack to intercept a password. The update enforces stricter validation, which prevents this attack. CVE-2007-2867 Boris Zbarsky, Eli Friedman, Georgi Guninski, Jesse Ruderman, Martijn Wargers and Olli Pettay discovered crashes in the layout engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2007-2868 Brendan Eich, Igor Bukanov, Jesse Ruderman, moz_bug_r_a4 and Wladimir Palant discovered crashes in the javascript engine, which might allow the execution of arbitrary code. CVE-2007-2870 moz_bug_r_a4 discovered that adding an event listener through the addEventListener() function allows cross-site scripting. CVE-2007-2871 Chris Thomas discovered that XUL popups can can be abused for spoofing or phishing attacks. Fixes for the oldstable distribution (sarge) are not available. While there will be another round of security updates for Mozilla products, Debian doesn't have the ressources to backport further security fixes to the old Mozilla products. You're strongly encouraged to upgrade to stable as soon as possible. For the stable distribution (etch) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.9-0etch1. A build for the arm architecture is not yet available, it will be provided later. The unstable distribution (sid) will be fixed soon. We recommend that you upgrade your iceape Linux Distribution Packages.

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update to iceape announced via advisory DSA 1300-1.

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
