Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were
tricked into opening a specially crafted page, an attacker could

disclosure. (CVE-2013-1741, CVE-2013-2566, CVE-2013-5605,
CVE-2013-5607).

has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Update the affected firefox package.
