The remote Mac OS X host contains a mail client that is potentially
affected by several vulnerabilities.
The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 16.0.1 and is
therefore potentially affected by the following security issues :
- An unspecified error related to the WebSockets
implementation and the function
'mozilla::net::FailDelayManager::Lookup' can allow
application crashes and potentially, arbitrary code
- An unspecified error exists that can allow attackers to
bypass the 'Same Origin Policy' and access the
'Location' object. (CVE-2012-4192)
- An error exists related to 'security wrappers' and the
function 'defaultValue()' that can allow cross-site
scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-4193)
