The remote Windows host contains a mail client that is affected by
The version of Thunderbird installed on the remote Windows host is
prior to 31.7. It is, therefore, affected by the following
- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists in the
Inter-process Communications (IPC) implementation due
to a failure to validate the identity of a listener
- Multiple memory corruption issues exist within the
browser engine. A remote attacker can exploit these to
corrupt memory and execute arbitrary code.
- A buffer overflow condition exists in SVGTextFrame.cpp
when rendering SVG graphics that are combined with
certain CSS properties due to improper validation of
user-supplied input. A remote attacker can exploit this
to cause a heap-based buffer overflow, resulting in the
execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2710)
- A use-after-free error exists due to improper processing
of text when vertical text is enabled. A remote attacker
can exploit this to dereference already freed memory.
- A buffer overflow condition exists in the
XML_GetBuffer() function in xmlparse.c due to improper
validation of user-supplied input when handling
compressed XML content. An attacker can exploit this to
cause a buffer overflow, resulting in the execution of
arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-2716)
