The remote Mac OS X host contains a mail client that is potentially
affected by several vulnerabilities.
The installed version of Thunderbird 10.x is potentially affected by
the following security issues :
- Several memory safety bugs exist in the browser engine
used in Mozilla-based products that could be exploited
to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-5843)
- An error exists in the method
'image::RasterImage::DrawFrameTo' related to GIF images
that could allow a heap-based buffer overflow, leading to
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-4202)
- Errors exist related to 'evalInSandbox', 'HZ-GB-2312'
charset, frames and the 'location' object, and
'cross-origin wrappers' that could allow cross-site
scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2012-4201,
CVE-2012-4207, CVE-2012-4209, CVE-2012-5841)
- Various use-after-free, out-of-bounds read and buffer
overflow errors exist that could potentially lead to
arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-4214, CVE-2012-4215,
CVE-2012-4216, CVE-2012-5829, CVE-2012-5830,
