SynopsisThe remote Amazon Linux 2 host is missing a security update.
DescriptionThe version of thunderbird installed on the remote host is prior to 78.8.0-1. It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ALAS2-2021-1618 advisory.
- If Content Security Policy blocked frame navigation, the full destination of a redirect served in the frame was reported in the violation report; as opposed to the original frame URI. This could be used to leak sensitive information contained in such URIs. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 86, Thunderbird < 78.8, and Firefox ESR < 78.8. (CVE-2021-23968)
- As specified in the W3C Content Security Policy draft, when creating a violation report, User agents need to ensure that the source file is the URL requested by the page, pre-redirects. If thats not possible, user agents need to strip the URL down to an origin to avoid unintentional leakage. Under certain types of redirects, Firefox incorrectly set the source file to be the destination of the redirects. This was fixed to be the redirect destination's origin. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 86, Thunderbird < 78.8, and Firefox ESR < 78.8. (CVE-2021-23969)
- When trying to load a cross-origin resource in an audio/video context a decoding error may have resulted, and the content of that error may have revealed information about the resource. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 86, Thunderbird < 78.8, and Firefox ESR < 78.8. (CVE-2021-23973)
- Mozilla developers reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 85 and Firefox ESR 78.7. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run arbitrary code. This vulnerability affects Firefox < 86, Thunderbird < 78.8, and Firefox ESR < 78.8. (CVE-2021-23978)
Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
