High Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801251

Synopsis

The remote host has a web browser installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote host is running a version of Mozilla Thunderbird earlier than 3.0.4. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple security issues :

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-16)

- A select event handler for XUL tree items can be called after the item is deleted. (MFSA 2010-17)

- An error exists in the way '&lt;option&gt;' elements are inserted into a XUL tree '&lt;optgroup&gt;'. (MFSA 2010-18)

Session renegotiations are not handled properly, which can be exploited to insert arbitrary plaintext by a man-in-the-middle. (MFSA 2010-22)

- XML documents fail to call certain security checks when loading new content. (MFSA 2010-24)
