Linux Patches Security Concerns with Firefox

Almost at urban legend status, Red Hat rarely rates updates as critical. Well, it’s not myth now, as an update is available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6 and 7. With a CVSS score of 8.8, we are recommending this update be actioned quickly.
An important fact to note, after installing the update, Firefox must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
This update upgrades Firefox to version 60.5.0 ESR.

Security Fixes:
• Mozilla: Use-after-free parsing HTML5 stream (CVE-2018-18500)
• Mozilla: Memory safety bugs fixed in Firefox 65 and Firefox ESR 60.5 (CVE-2018-18501)
• Mozilla: Privilege escalation through IPC channel messages (CVE-2018-18505)
