critical Nessus Plugin ID 127172
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 machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 5.04, has thunderbird packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 58 and Firefox ESR 52.6. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59. (CVE-2018-5125)

- A buffer overflow can occur when manipulating the SVG animatedPathSegList through script. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59. (CVE-2018-5127)

- A lack of parameter validation on IPC messages results in a potential out-of-bounds write through malformed IPC messages. This can potentially allow for sandbox escape through memory corruption in the parent process. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.7, Firefox ESR < 52.7, and Firefox < 59. (CVE-2018-5129)

- An integer overflow can occur during conversion of text to some Unicode character sets due to an unchecked length parameter. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.7 and Thunderbird < 52.7. (CVE-2018-5144)

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox ESR 52.6.
These bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort that some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Firefox ESR < 52.7 and Thunderbird < 52.7.
(CVE-2018-5145)

- An out of bounds write flaw was found in the processing of vorbis audio data. A maliciously crafted file or audio stream could cause the application to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-5146)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.

Solution

Upgrade the vulnerable CGSL thunderbird packages. Note that updated packages may not be available yet. Please contact ZTE for more information.
