Description

Updated firefox packages that fix multiple security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having Critical security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser. XULRunner provides the XUL Runtime environment for Mozilla Firefox.

Multiple security flaws were found in the graphite2 font library shipped with Firefox. A web page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Firefox. (CVE-2016-1521, CVE-2016-1522, CVE-2016-1523)

All Firefox users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain Firefox version 38.6.1 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
