Ubuntu Security Notice 3260-1 - Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to read uninitialized memory, obtain sensitive information, spoof the addressbar contents or other UI elements, escape the sandbox to read local files, conduct cross-site scripting attacks, cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.
