Description

Impact
======

A remote attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted web
page, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the
privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition.
Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to perform Man-in-the-Middle
attacks, obtain sensitive information, spoof the address bar, conduct
clickjacking attacks, bypass security restrictions and protection
mechanisms, or have other unspecified impact.

Workaround
==========

Resolution
==========

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/firefox-68.6.0"

All Mozilla Firefox binary users should upgrade to the latest version:

  # emerge --sync
  # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/firefox-bin-68.6.0"
