Debian DLA-730-1 : firefox-esr security update

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Firefox web browser: Multiple memory safety errors, buffer overflows and other implementation errors may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or bypass of the same-origin policy. A man-in-the-middle attack in the addon update mechanism has been fixed. A use-after-free vulnerability in the SVG Animation was discovered, allowing a remote attacker to cause a denial of service (application crash) or execute arbitrary code, if a user is tricked into opening a specially crafted website. For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 45.5.1esr-1~deb7u1. We recommend that you upgrade your firefox-esr packages. NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
