Mandriva Linux Security Advisory : mozilla-thunderbird (MDVSA-2011:080)

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Mandriva Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla-thunderbird :

Security researcher Soroush Dalili reported that the resource:
protocol could be exploited to allow directory traversal on Windows
and the potential loading of resources from non-permitted locations.
The impact would depend on whether interesting files existed in
predictable locations in a useful format. For example, the existence
or non-existence of particular images might indicate whether certain
software was installed (CVE-2011-0071).

Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs in
the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products.
Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption under certain
circumstances, and we presume that with enough effort at least some of
these could be exploited to run arbitrary code (CVE-2011-0081,
CVE-2011-0069, CVE-2011-0070, CVE-2011-0080, CVE-2011-0074,
CVE-2011-0075, CVE-2011-0077, CVE-2011-0078, CVE-2011-0072).

The mozilla-thunderbird-lightning package shipped with MDVSA-2011:042
had a packaging bug that prevented extension to be loaded (#59951).

Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance
Program. Please visit this link to learn more: products_id=490

Additionally, some packages which require so, have been rebuilt and
are being provided as updates.
