DESCRIPTION:
Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Firefox and
Thunderbird, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct
cross-site scripting and spoofing attacks, bypass certain security
restrictions, and compromise a user's system.

1) Several unspecified errors in the browser engine can be exploited
to corrupt memory.

2) An error when handling the "<select>" dropdown menu can be
exploited to display arbitrary content while showing the URL of
another site.

3) An error when handling the "document.domain" properly can be
exploited to bypass the same origin policy and e.g. execute script
code in the context of another domain.

4) Some errors can be exploited to bypass checks for the
DOMWindowUtils class and call restricted methods.

5) An error when transitioning into Reader Mode does not properly
sanitise content and can be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting
attacks.

Note: This vulnerability only affects Firefox for Android.

6) A use-after-free error exists when invoking full screen mode and
navigating backwards in history.

7) An invalid cast error exists when using the instanceof operator on
certain JavaScript objects.

8) An error when invoking the "GetProperty()" function via JSAPI can
be exploited to bypass certain checks and execute arbitrary code.

9) An error when handling the "location" property via binary plugins
can be exploited to conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

10) An error within Chrome Object Wrapper (COW) when handling the
"InstallTrigger" object can be exploited to access certain privileged
functions and properties.

11) An error when handling the "location.hash" property and history
navigation can be exploited to e.g. display an arbitrary site or
execute arbitrary script code.

12) An out-of-bounds read error exists within the
"IsCSSWordSpacingSpace()" function.

13) A use-after-free error exists within the
"nsHTMLCSSUtils::CreateCSSPropertyTxn()" function.

14) An error within the "nsHTMLEditor::IsPrevCharInNodeWhitespace()"
function can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

15) A use-after-free error exists within the
"nsSMILAnimationController::DoSample()" function.

16) A use-after-free error exists within the
"nsTextEditRules::WillInsert()" function.

17) A use-after-free error exists within the
"DOMSVGTests::GetRequiredFeatures()" function.

18) An error within the "nsCharTraits::length()" function can be
exploited to cause a buffer overflow.

19) An error within the "nsWaveReader::DecodeAudioData()" function
can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

20) An error within the "insPos" property can be exploited to corrupt
memory.

21) An error within the "Convolve3x3()" function can be exploited to
cause a heap-based buffer overflow.

22) A use-after-free error exists within the
"nsIContent::GetNameSpaceID()" function.

SOLUTION:
Upgrade to version 16.
