We apologize for the inconvenience.

Original advisory details:

 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 cause a denial of service, bypass CSP
 restrictions, spoof the protocol registration notification bar, leak
 SameSite cookies, bypass mixed content warnings, or execute arbitrary
 code. (CVE-2018-12388, CVE-2018-12390, CVE-2018-12392, CVE-2018-12393,

 CVE-2018-12403)
 
 Multiple security issues were discovered with WebExtensions in Firefox.
 If a user were tricked in to installing a specially crafted extension, an
 attacker could potentially exploit these to bypass domain restrictions,
 gain additional privileges, or run content scripts in local pages without
 permission. (CVE-2018-12395, CVE-2018-12396, CVE-2018-12397)
