Debian DLA-906-1 : firefox-esr security update

critical Nessus Plugin ID 99600

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, use-after-frees, buffer overflows and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code, information disclosure or denial of service.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 45.9.0esr-1~deb7u1.

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

Upgrade the affected packages.
