Debian DSA-4310-1 : firefox-esr - security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 117909


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


Two security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser, which could potentially result in the execution of arbitrary code inside the sandboxed content process.


Upgrade the firefox-esr packages.

For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 60.2.2esr-1~deb9u1.
