Summary

Multiple security issues have been found in Iceweasel, Debian's version of the Mozilla Firefox web browser. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following problems: CVE-2015-0817 ilxu1a reported a flaw in Mozilla's implementation of typed array bounds checking in JavaScript just-in-time compilation (JIT) and its management of bounds checking for heap access. This flaw can be leveraged into the reading and writing of memory allowing for arbitrary code execution on the local system. CVE-2015-0818 Mariusz Mlynski discovered a method to run arbitrary scripts in a privileged context. This bypassed the same-origin policy protections by using a flaw in the processing of SVG format content navigation.
