==========================================================================

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

- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 17.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

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

Details:

A heap buffer overflow was discovered in Skia. If a user were tricked in
to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially
exploit this to cause a denial of service, or execute arbitrary code.

Update instructions:

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

all the necessary changes.
