Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Thunderbird mail client: Multiple memory safety errors, use after free and other implementation errors may lead to crashes or the execution of arbitrary code.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1:52.5.0-1~deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your thunderbird packages.

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

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
