Ubuntu Security Notice USN-3874-1
January 30, 2019

firefox vulnerabilities
=
=

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

– Ubuntu 18.10
– Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
– Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Firefox could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
opened a malicious website.

Software Description:
– firefox: Mozilla Open Source web browser

Details:

Multiple 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, gain additional
privileges by escaping the sandbox, or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2018-18500, CVE-2018-18501, CVE-2018-18502, CVE-2018-18503,
CVE-2018-18504, CVE-2018-18505)

It was discovered that Firefox allowed PAC files to specify that requests=

to localhost are sent through the proxy to another server. If proxy
auto-detection is enabled, an attacker could potentially exploit this to
conduct attacks on local services and tools. (CVE-2018-18506)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:
