Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable Linux Distribution Package version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
USN-3991-1 fixed vulnerabilities in Firefox. The update caused a regression which resulted in issues when upgrading between Ubuntu releases. This update fixes the problem. 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, spoof the browser  UI, trick the user in to launching local executable binaries, obtain  sensitive information, conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, or  execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-11691, CVE-2019-11692, CVE-2019-11693,  CVE-2019-11695, CVE-2019-11696, CVE-2019-11699, CVE-2019-11701,  CVE-2019-7317, CVE-2019-9800, CVE-2019-9814, CVE-2019-9817, CVE-2019-9819,  CVE-2019-9820, CVE-2019-9821)    It was discovered that pressing certain key combinations could bypass  addon installation prompt delays. If a user opened a specially crafted  website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to trick them in to  installing a malicious extension. (CVE-2019-11697)    It was discovered that history data could be exposed via drag and drop  of hyperlinks to and from bookmarks. If a user were tricked in to dragging  a specially crafted hyperlink to the bookmark toolbar or sidebar, and  subsequently back in to the web content area, an attacker could  potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2019-11698)    A type confusion bug was discovered with object groups and UnboxedObjects.  If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website after  enabling the UnboxedObjects feature, an attacker could potentially  exploit this to bypass security checks.
