September 28, 2020

firefox vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS


Firefox could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
opened a malicious website.

Software Description:
- firefox: Mozilla Open Source web browser


Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were
tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, conduct cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks, spoof the site displayed in the download dialog,
or execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 20.04 LTS:
  firefox                         81.0+build2-0ubuntu0.20.04.1

Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
  firefox                         81.0+build2-0ubuntu0.18.04.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  firefox                         81.0+build2-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

After a standard system update you need to restart Firefox to make
all the necessary changes.
