New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionMultiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, obtain sensitive information, bypass iframe sandbox restrictions, confuse the user, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2020-6463, CVE-2020-6514, CVE-2020-15652, CVE-2020-15653, CVE-2020-15654, CVE-2020-15656, CVE-2020-15658, CVE-2020-15659) It was discovered that redirected HTTP requests which are observed or modified through a web extension could bypass existing CORS checks. If a user were tricked in to installing a specially crafted extension, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information across origins. (CVE-2020-15655).
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected firefox package.
