High

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Thunderbird 3.1.x earlier than 3.1.7 are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues could lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-74)

- On the Windows platform, when 'document.write()' is called with a very long string a buffer overflow could be triggered. (MFSA 2010-75)

- Downloadable fonts could expose vulnerabilities in the underlying OS font code. (MFSA 2010-78)
