Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2017 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user
were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing
context, an attacker could potentially exploit these to bypass same
origin restrictions, obtain sensitive information, cause a denial of
service via application crash or hang, or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-5398, CVE-2017-5400, CVE-2017-5401, CVE-2017-5402,
CVE-2017-5404, CVE-2017-5405, CVE-2017-5407, CVE-2017-5408,
CVE-2017-5410).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected thunderbird package.
