NewStart CGSL MAIN 4.05 : thunderbird Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0119)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 127363

Synopsis

The remote machine is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The remote NewStart CGSL host, running version MAIN 4.05, has thunderbird packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities:

- File downloads encoded with blob: and data: URL elements bypassed normal file download checks though the Phishing and Malware Protection feature and its block lists of suspicious sites and files. This would allow malicious sites to lure users into downloading executables that would otherwise be detected as suspicious. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 56, Firefox ESR < 52.4, and Thunderbird < 52.4.
(CVE-2017-7814)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur in design mode when image objects are resized if objects referenced during the resizing have been freed from memory. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 56, Firefox ESR < 52.4, and Thunderbird < 52.4. (CVE-2017-7819)

- The content security policy (CSP) sandbox directive did not create a unique origin for the document, causing it to behave as if the allow-same-origin keyword were always specified. This could allow a Cross-Site Scripting (XSS) attack to be launched from unsafe content. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 56, Firefox ESR < 52.4, and Thunderbird < 52.4.
(CVE-2017-7823)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when an editor DOM node is deleted prematurely during tree traversal while still bound to the document. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7809)

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 54, Firefox ESR 52.2, and Thunderbird 52.2. 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 < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7779)

- An out-of-bounds read occurs when applying style rules to pseudo-elements, such as ::first-line, using cached style data. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55.
(CVE-2017-7753)

- A buffer overflow can occur when manipulating Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) attributes within the DOM. This results in a potentially exploitable crash.
This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7785)

- A buffer overflow can occur when the image renderer attempts to paint non-displayable SVG elements. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7786)

- Same-origin policy protections can be bypassed on pages with embedded iframes during page reloads, allowing the iframes to access content on the top level page, leading to information disclosure. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7787)

- A buffer overflow will occur when viewing a certificate in the certificate manager if the certificate has an extremely long object identifier (OID). This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7792)

- On pages containing an iframe, the data: protocol can be used to create a modal alert that will render over arbitrary domains following page navigation, spoofing of the origin of the modal alert from the iframe content.
This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7791)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur in WebSockets when the object holding the connection is freed before the disconnection operation is finished. This results in an exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7800)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when manipulating the DOM during the resize event of an image element. If these elements have been freed due to a lack of strong references, a potentially exploitable crash may occur when the freed elements are accessed. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7802)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur while re- computing layout for a marquee element during window resizing where the updated style object is freed while still in use. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7801)

- A mechanism that uses AppCache to hijack a URL in a domain using fallback by serving the files from a sub- path on the domain. This has been addressed by requiring fallback files be inside the manifest directory. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7807)

- When a page's content security policy (CSP) header contains a sandbox directive, other directives are ignored. This results in the incorrect enforcement of CSP. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7803)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when reading an image observer during frame reconstruction after the observer has been freed. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.3, Firefox ESR < 52.3, and Firefox < 55. (CVE-2017-7784)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when manipulating arrays of Accessible Rich Internet Applications (ARIA) elements within containers through the DOM. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 56, Firefox ESR < 52.4, and Thunderbird < 52.4. (CVE-2017-7818)

- A buffer overflow occurs when drawing and validating elements with the ANGLE graphics library, used for WebGL content. This is due to an incorrect value being passed within the library during checks and results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 56, Firefox ESR < 52.4, and Thunderbird < 52.4. (CVE-2017-7824)

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 55 and Firefox ESR 52.3. 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 Firefox < 56, Firefox ESR < 52.4, and Thunderbird < 52.4. (CVE-2017-7810)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur in the Fetch API when the worker or the associated window are freed when still in use, resulting in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 56, Firefox ESR < 52.4, and Thunderbird < 52.4.
(CVE-2017-7793)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur when flushing and resizing layout because the PressShell object has been freed while still in use. This results in a potentially exploitable crash during these operations.
This vulnerability affects Firefox < 57, Firefox ESR < 52.5, and Thunderbird < 52.5. (CVE-2017-7828)

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 56 and Firefox ESR 52.4. 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 Firefox < 57, Firefox ESR < 52.5, and Thunderbird < 52.5. (CVE-2017-7826)

- The Resource Timing API incorrectly revealed navigations in cross-origin iframes. This is a same-origin policy violation and could allow for data theft of URLs loaded by users. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 57, Firefox ESR < 52.5, and Thunderbird < 52.5.
(CVE-2017-7830)

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