The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
Juan Pablo Lopez Yacubian discovered that Firefox did not properly
display invalid URLs. If a user were tricked into accessing a
malicious website, an attacker could exploit this to spoof the
location bar, such as in a phishing attack. Furthermore, if the
malicious website had a valid SSL certificate, Firefox would display
the spoofed page as trusted.
Update the affected packages.
