Debian DLA-1571-1 : firefox-esr security update

High Nessus Plugin ID 118808

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser, which could result in the execution of arbitrary code, privilege escalation or information disclosure.

For Debian 8 'Jessie', these problems have been fixed in version 60.3.0esr-1~deb8u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your firefox-esr packages.

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

Solution
