New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

SynopsisA mail client installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Thunderbird installed on the remote macOS or Mac OS X host is prior to 60.5.1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the mfsa2019-06 advisory.
- A buffer overflow vulnerability in the Skia library can occur with Canvas 2D acceleration on macOS. This issue was addressed by disabling Canvas 2D acceleration in Firefox ESR. *Note: this does not affect other versions and platforms where Canvas 2D acceleration is already disabled by default. (CVE-2018-18335)
- A use-after-free vulnerability in the Skia library can occur when creating a path, leading to a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2018-18356)
- A flaw during verification of certain S/MIME signatures causes emails to be shown in Thunderbird as having a valid digital signature, even if the shown message contents aren't covered by the signature. The flaw allows an attacker to reuse a valid S/MIME signature to craft an email message with arbitrary content.
- An integer overflow vulnerability in the Skia library can occur after specific transform operations, leading to a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2019-5785)
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
SolutionUpgrade to Mozilla Thunderbird version 60.5.1 or later.
