firefox vulnerabilities

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.10
- Ubuntu 21.04
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS


Firefox could be made to crash or run programs as your login if it
opened a malicious website.

Software Description:
- firefox: Mozilla Open Source web browser


Multiple security issues were discovered in Firefox. If a user were
tricked into opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, obtain sensitive
information, conduct spoofing attacks, bypass CSP restrictions, or
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2021-43536, CVE-2021-43537, CVE-2021-43538,
CVE-2021-43539, CVE-2021-43541, CVE-2021-43542, CVE-2021-43543,
CVE-2021-43545, CVE-2021-43546)

A security issue was discovered with the handling of WebExtension
permissions. If a user were tricked into installing a specially crafted
extension, an attacker could potentially exploit this to create and
install a service worker that wouldn't be uninstalled with the extension.

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 21.10:
