New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Several security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, denial of service or information disclosure.

For the oldstable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 52.7.1esr-1~deb8u1.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 52.7.1esr-1~deb9u1.
