Oracle Linux 8 : thunderbird (ELSA-2022-5774)

high Nessus Plugin ID 163738

Synopsis

The remote Oracle Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Oracle Linux 8 host has a package installed that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the ELSA-2022-5774 advisory.

- Mozilla developers and the Mozilla Fuzzing Team reported memory safety bugs present in Thunderbird 102.
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. (CVE-2022-2505)

- When visiting directory listings for `chrome://` URLs as source text, some parameters were reflected.
(CVE-2022-36318)

- When combining CSS properties for overflow and transform, the mouse cursor could interact with different coordinates than displayed. (CVE-2022-36319)

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

Solution

Update the affected thunderbird package.
