==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 21.10

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 into opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, obtain sensitive
information, spoof the browser UI, conduct cross-site scripting (XSS)
attacks, bypass content security policy (CSP) restrictions, or execute
arbitrary code.

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