Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a mail client that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 3.1.1. Such
versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory safety bugs could result in memory
corruption, potentially resulting in arbitrary code
execution. (MFSA 2010-34)

- It may be possible to run arbitrary JavaScript with
chrome privileges using SJOW and fast native
function. (MFSA 2010-38)

- The array class used to store CSS values is affected
by an integer overflow vulnerability. (MFSA 2010-39)

- An integer overflow vulnerability exists in the
'selection' attribute of XUL <tree> element.
(MFSA 2010-40)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in Mozilla graphics
code could lead to arbitrary code execution.
(MFSA 2010-41)

- It is possible to read and parse resources from other
domains even when the content is not valid JavaScript
leading to cross-domain data disclosure. (MFSA 2010-42)

- The canvas element can be used to read data from another
site leading to a same-origin bypass vulnerability.
(MFSA 2010-43)

- Characters mapped to U+FFFD in 8 bit encodings could
cause subsequent characters to disappear, potentially
contributing to cross-site scripting issues on certain
websites. (MFSA 2010-44)

- It is possible to read data across domains by
injecting bogus CSS selectors into a target site.
(MFSA 2010-46)

- Potentially sensitive URL parameters could be leaked
across domains via script errors. (MFSA 2010-47)
