Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains a mail client that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The version of Thunderbird installed on the remote Mac OS X host is a
version prior to 31.3. It is, therefore, affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- A remote code execution vulnerability exists in Mozilla
Network Security Services (NSS) due to a flaw in
'quickder.c' that is triggered when handling PKCS#1
signatures during the decoding of ASN.1 DER.
(CVE-2014-1569)

- Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser
engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial
of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1587,
CVE-2014-1588)

- A denial of service vulnerability exists due to
improper parsing of a JavaScript object to the
XMLHttpRequest API which can result in a crash.
(CVE-2014-1590)

- A use-after-free error exists due the creation of a
second XML root element when parsing HTML written to a
document created with 'document.open()' function which
can result in arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2014-1592)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in the
'mozilla::FileBlockCache::Read' function when parsing
media which can result in arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2014-1593)

- A casting error exists when casting from the
'BasicThebesLayer' layer to the 'BasicContainerLayer'
layer which can result in arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2014-1594)

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists due to
the CoreGraphic framework creating log files containing
sensitive information in the '/tmp' directory.
(CVE-2014-1595)
