Package: iceweasel
Version: 3.5.16-4
Severity: wishlist
User: debian-security at lists.debian.org
Usertags: hardening


Iceweasel being a really sensitive application in the debian system,
having its package compiled with the hardening options seems really like a
good idea.

I did build a version with the hardening-wrapper that I'm using now since
quite some time, and it seems to work smoothly. So I guess this compile
time options could be included in the debian package.

To enable this feature, you only have to add the hardening-wrapper package
to the build-dep and export DEB_BUILD_HARDENING=1 in debian/rules. See
http://wiki.debian.org/Hardening for more informations on this topic.
