Ubuntu 17.10 / 18.04 LTS : Spidermonkey vulnerabilities (USN-3688-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 110622

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple memory safety issues were fixed in Spidermonkey. An attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, or execute arbitrary code.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected libmozjs-52-0 package.
