Ubuntu Security Notice 3435-1 – 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 read uninitialized memory, obtain sensitive information, bypass phishing and malware protection, spoof the origin in modal dialogs, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.
