Description

Multiple security vulnerabilities were discovered in Firefox. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, obtain sensitive information, cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-9080, CVE-2016-9893, CVE-2016-9894, CVE-2016-9895, CVE-2016-9896, CVE-2016-9897, CVE-2016-9898, CVE-2016-9899, CVE-2016-9900, CVE-2016-9901, CVE-2016-9902, CVE-2016-9903, CVE-2016-9904).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
