high Nessus Plugin ID 197602

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

The remote Ubuntu 20.04 LTS / 22.04 LTS / 23.10 host has packages installed that are affected by multiple vulnerabilities as referenced in the USN-6782-1 advisory.

Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, obtain sensitive information, bypass security restrictions, cross-site tracing, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2024-4767, CVE-2024-4768, CVE-2024-4769, CVE-2024-4777)

Thomas Rinsma discovered that Thunderbird did not properly handle type check when handling fonts in PDF.js. An attacker could potentially exploit this issue to execute arbitrary javascript code in PDF.js.
(CVE-2024-4367)

Irvan Kurniawan discovered that Thunderbird did not properly handle certain font styles when saving a page to PDF. An attacker could potentially exploit this issue to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2024-4770)

Tenable has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory.

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