This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a mail client that is potentially
affected by an integer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The installed version of Thunderbird 10.x is earlier than 10.0.2 and is,
therefore, potentially affected by an integer overflow vulnerability.

An integer overflow error exists in 'libpng', a library used by this
application. When decompressing certain PNG image files, this error
can allow a heap-based buffer overflow which can crash the
application or potentially allow code execution.
