Mozilla Thunderbird < 1.5.0.2 or 1.0.8 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a critical security patch or upgrade.

Description

The remote host is running a vulnerable version of Mozilla Thunderbird mail client. This version of Thunderbird is vulnerable to multiple denial of service attacks, overflows, information disclosure, privilege escalation, and other issues. An attacker exploiting these flaws would need to be able to convince a user to open or read a malicious email. Successful exploitation would give the attacker the ability to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Thunderbird.

Solution

Install version 1.5.0.2, 1.0.8 or higher.
