NewStart CGSL MAIN 4.05 : thunderbird Multiple Vulnerabilities (NS-SA-2019-0136)

High Nessus Plugin ID 127395

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:

- Using remote content in encrypted messages can lead to the disclosure of plaintext. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird ESR < 52.8 and Thunderbird < 52.8.
(CVE-2018-5184)

- Crafted message headers can cause a Thunderbird process to hang on receiving the message. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird ESR < 52.8 and Thunderbird < 52.8.
(CVE-2018-5161)

- Plaintext of decrypted emails can leak through the src attribute of remote images, or links. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird ESR < 52.8 and Thunderbird < 52.8.
(CVE-2018-5162)

- It is possible to spoof the filename of an attachment and display an arbitrary attachment name. This could lead to a user opening a remote attachment which is a different file type than expected. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird ESR < 52.8 and Thunderbird < 52.8.
(CVE-2018-5170)

- Plaintext of decrypted emails can leak through by user submitting an embedded form. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird ESR < 52.8 and Thunderbird < 52.8.
(CVE-2018-5185)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur while enumerating attributes during SVG animations with clip paths. This results in a potentially exploitable crash.
This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.8, Thunderbird ESR < 52.8, Firefox < 60, and Firefox ESR < 52.8. (CVE-2018-5154)

- A use-after-free vulnerability can occur while adjusting layout during SVG animations with text paths. This results in a potentially exploitable crash. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.8, Thunderbird ESR < 52.8, Firefox < 60, and Firefox ESR < 52.8.
(CVE-2018-5155)

- An integer overflow can occur in the Skia library due to 32-bit integer use in an array without integer overflow checks, resulting in possible out-of-bounds writes. This could lead to a potentially exploitable crash triggerable by web content. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.8, Thunderbird ESR < 52.8, Firefox < 60, and Firefox ESR < 52.8. (CVE-2018-5159)

- A buffer overflow was found during UTF8 to Unicode string conversion within JavaScript with extremely large amounts of data. This vulnerability requires the use of a malicious or vulnerable legacy extension in order to occur. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird ESR < 52.8, Thunderbird < 52.8, and Firefox ESR < 52.8.
(CVE-2018-5178)

- Mozilla developers backported selected changes in the Skia library. These changes correct memory corruption issues including invalid buffer reads and writes during graphic operations. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird ESR < 52.8, Thunderbird < 52.8, and Firefox ESR < 52.8. (CVE-2018-5183)

- Memory safety bugs were reported in Firefox 59, Firefox ESR 52.7, and Thunderbird 52.7. 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 < 52.8, Thunderbird ESR < 52.8, Firefox < 60, and Firefox ESR < 52.8. (CVE-2018-5150)

- Sites can bypass security checks on permissions to install lightweight themes by manipulating the baseURI property of the theme element. This could allow a malicious site to install a theme without user interaction which could contain offensive or embarrassing images. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 52.8, Thunderbird ESR < 52.8, Firefox < 60, and Firefox ESR < 52.8. (CVE-2018-5168)

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