The problems have been fixed upstream in version 78.10.0.

Workaround

None.

Description
==========
- CVE-2021-23961 (information disclosure)

A security issue was found in Firefox before version 85.0. Further
techniques that built on the slipstream research combined with a
malicious webpage could have exposed both an internal network's hosts
as well as services running on the user's local machine.

- CVE-2021-23994 (arbitrary code execution)

A security issue has been found in Firefox before version 88 and
Thunderbird before version 78.10. A WebGL framebuffer was not
initialized early enough, resulting in memory corruption and an out of
bounds write.

- CVE-2021-23995 (arbitrary code execution)

A security issue has been found in Firefox before version 88 and
Thunderbird before version 78.10. When Responsive Design Mode was
enabled, it used references to objects that were previously freed.
Mozilla presumes that with enough effort this could have been exploited
to run arbitrary code.

- CVE-2021-23998 (content spoofing)

A security issue has been found in Firefox before version 88 and
Thunderbird before version 78.10. Through complicated navigations with
new windows, an HTTP page could have inherited a secure lock icon from
an HTTPS page.

- CVE-2021-23999 (sandbox escape)

A security issue has been found in Firefox before version 88 and
Thunderbird before version 78.10. If a Blob URL was loaded through some
unusual user interaction, it could have been loaded by the System
Principal and granted additional privileges that should not be granted
to web content.

- CVE-2021-24002 (arbitrary command execution)

A security issue has been found in Firefox before version 88 and
Thunderbird before version 78.10. When a user clicked on an FTP URL
containing encoded newline characters (%0A and %0D), the newlines would
have been interpreted as such and allowed arbitrary commands to be sent
to the FTP server.

- CVE-2021-29946 (access restriction bypass)

A security issue has been found in Firefox before version 88 and
Thunderbird before version 78.10. Ports that were written as an integer
overflow above the bounds of a 16-bit integer could have bypassed port
blocking restrictions when used in the Alt-Svc header.

- CVE-2021-29948 (signature forgery)

A security issue has been found in Thunderbird before version 78.10.
Signatures are written to disk before and read during verification,
which might be subject to a race condition when a malicious local
process or user is replacing the file.

Impact
=====
An attacker is able to execute arbitrary code, spoof context, escape
the sandbox, and bypass port blocking restrictions through various
means. In addition a local attacker might spoof the verification of
emails signed using PGP by winning a race condition.
