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
prior to 31.5. It is, therefore, affected by the following
vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists related
to the autocomplete feature that allows an attacker to
read arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-0822)

- An out-of-bounds read and write issue exists when
processing invalid SVG graphic files. This allows an
attacker to disclose sensitive information.

- A use-after-free issue exists when running specific web
content with 'IndexedDB' to create an index, resulting
in a denial of service condition or arbitrary code
execution. (CVE-2015-0831)

- Multiple unspecified memory safety issues exist within
the browser engine. (CVE-2015-0835, CVE-2015-0836)
