Debian DSA-4479-1 : firefox-esr - security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 126654

Synopsis

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

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser, which could potentially result in the execution of arbitrary code, cross-site scripting, spoofing, information disclosure, denial of service or cross-site request forgery.

Solution

Upgrade the firefox-esr packages.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in version 60.8.0esr-1~deb9u1.

For the stable distribution (buster), these problems have been fixed in version 60.8.0esr-1~deb10u1.

CVE-2019-11719 and CVE-2019-11729 are only addressed for stretch, in buster Firefox uses the system-wide copy of NSS which will be updated separately.
