Mozilla Thunderbird < 1.5.0.2 or 1.0.8 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Log Correlation Engine Plugin ID 801357
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote host is missing a critical security patch or upgrade.

Description

The remote host is running a vulnerable version of Mozilla Thunderbird mail client. This version of Thunderbird is vulnerable to multiple denial of service attacks, overflows, information disclosure, privilege escalation, and other issues. An attacker exploiting these flaws would need to be able to convince a user to open or read a malicious email. Successful exploitation would give the attacker the ability to execute arbitrary code with the permissions of the user running Thunderbird.

Solution

Install version 1.5.0.2, 1.0.8 or higher.
