Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A
web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running Firefox. (CVE-2015-7201, CVE-2015-7205, CVE-2015-7210,
CVE-2015-7212, CVE-2015-7213, CVE-2015-7222)
A flaw was found in the way Firefox handled content using the 'data:'
and 'view-source:' URIs. An attacker could use this flaw to bypass the
same- origin policy and read data from cross-site URLs and local
5.0 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update,
Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
