Description

An update for firefox is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Critical. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Mozilla Firefox is an open source web browser.

This update upgrades Firefox to version 52.5.0 ESR.

Security Fix(es) :

  • Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. 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-2017-7826, CVE-2017-7828, CVE-2017-7830)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Christian Holler, David Keeler, Jon Coppeard, Julien Cristau, Jan de Mooij, Jason Kratzer, Philipp, Nicholas Nethercote, Oriol Brufau, Andre Bargull, Bob Clary, Jet Villegas, Randell Jesup, Tyson Smith, Gary Kwong, Ryan VanderMeulen, Nils, and Jun Kokatsu as the original reporters.
