Iceweasel update today in Debian

Speaking of Iceweasel, there’s an update to version 3.5.16 today for Debian. Mine just rolled in for Squeeze.

Details are in the Debian Security Advisory, which references Jacob Appelbaum’s blog post for the Tor project for further details.

The short explanation: “This update for Iceweasel, a web browser based on Firefox, updates the certificate blacklist for several fraudulent HTTPS certificates.”

There are updates for Debian Lenny, Squeeze, Sid and Experimental. Time to run an update.
