Mozilla Thunderbird 24.x < 24.7 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

This script is Copyright (C) 2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains a mail client that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Thunderbird 24.x installed on the remote host is a version
prior to 24.7. It is, therefore, affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- When a pair of NSSCertificate structures are added to a
trust domain and then one of them is removed during use,
a use-after-free error occurs which may cause the
application to crash. This crash is potentially
exploitable. (CVE-2014-1544)

- There are multiple memory safety hazards within the
browser engine. These hazards may lead to memory
corruption vulnerabilities, which may allow attackers
to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1547,
CVE-2014-1548)

- Triggering the FireOnStateChange event has the
potential to crash the application. This may lead to
a use-after-free and an exploitable crash.
(CVE-2014-1555)

- When using the Cesium JavaScript library to generate
WebGL content, the application may crash. This crash
is potentially exploitable. (CVE-2014-1556)

- There is a flaw in the Skia library when scaling images
of high quality. If the image data is discarded while
being processed, the library may crash. This crash
is potentially exploitable. (CVE-2014-1557)
