         plugin
       * MFSA 2016-34/CVE-2016-1974: Out-of-bounds read in HTML parser
         following a failed allocation
       * MFSA 2016-35/CVE-2016-1950: Buffer overflow during ASN.1 decoding in
         NSS
       * MFSA 2016-37/CVE-2016-1977/CVE-2016-2790/CVE-2016-2791/
         CVE-2016-2792/CVE-2016-2793/CVE-2016-2794/CVE-2016-2795/
         CVE-2016-2796/CVE-2016-2797/CVE-2016-2798/CVE-2016-2799/
         CVE-2016-2800/CVE-2016-2801/CVE-2016-2802: Font vulnerabilities in
         the Graphite 2 library.

   Mozilla NSPR was updated to version 4.12, fixing following bugs:

       * Added a PR_GetEnvSecure function, which attempts to detect if the
         program is being executed with elevated privileges, and returns NULL
         if detected. It is recommended to use this function in general
         purpose library code.
       * Fixed a memory allocation bug related to the PR_*printf functions
       * Exported API PR_DuplicateEnvironment, which had already been added
         in NSPR 4.10.9
       * Several minor correctness and compatibility fixes.

   Mozilla NSS was updated to fix security issues:

       * MFSA 2016-15/CVE-2016-1978: Use-after-free in NSS during SSL
         connections in low memory
       * MFSA 2016-35/CVE-2016-1950: Buffer overflow during ASN.1 decoding in
         NSS
