Mozilla Thunderbird < 2.0.0.24 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High

Synopsis

The remote host contains a mail client that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The isntalled version of Mozilla Thunderbird is earlier than 2.0.0.24. Such version are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- The columns of a XUL tree element can be manipulated in a particular way which would leave a pointer owned by the column pointing to freed memory. (MFSA 2009-49)

- A heap-based buffer overflow exists in Mozilla's string to floating point number conversion routines. (MFSA 2009-59)

- It is possible to obfuscate the name of files to be downloaded by using a right-to-left override character (RTL). (MFSA 2009-62)

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.24 or later.
