Synopsis

The remote Virtuozzo host is missing a security update.

Description

An update for thunderbird is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

This update upgrades Thunderbird to version 45.8.0.

Security Fix(es) :

* Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2017-5398, CVE-2017-5400, CVE-2017-5401, CVE-2017-5402, CVE-2017-5404, CVE-2017-5407, CVE-2017-5408, CVE-2017-5410, CVE-2017-5405)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Nils, Jerri Rice, Rh0, Anton Eliasson, David Kohlbrenner, Ivan Fratric of Google Project Zero, Anonymous, Eric Lawrence of Chrome Security, Boris Zbarsky, Christian Holler, Honza Bambas, Jon Coppeard, Randell Jesup, Andre Bargull, Kan-Ru Chen, and Nathan Froyd as the original reporters.

Note that Tenable Network Security has attempted to extract the preceding description block directly from the corresponding Red Hat security advisory. Virtuozzo provides no description for VZLSA advisories. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected thunderbird package.
