High Nessus Plugin ID 118443

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

This update upgrades Firefox to version 60.3.0 ESR.

Security Fix(es) :

- Mozilla: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 63 and Firefox ESR 60.3 (CVE-2018-12390)

Bug Fix(es) :

- Previously, passwords saved in the Firefox browser and encrypted by a master password were erased when Firefox was exited. This update ensures that NSS files used to decrypt stored login data are handled correctly. As a result, the affected passwords are no longer lost after restarting Firefox.

Solution

Update the affected firefox and / or firefox-debuginfo packages.
