Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mozilla-thunderbird (MDKSA-2006:021)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 20810
SynopsisThe remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionGUI display truncation vulnerability in Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.2, 1.0.6, and 1.0.7 allows user-complicit attackers to execute arbitrary code via an attachment with a filename containing a large number of spaces ending with a dangerous extension that is not displayed by Thunderbird, along with an inconsistent Content-Type header, which could be used to trick a user into downloading dangerous content by dragging or saving the attachment.
The updated packages have been patched to correct this problem.
SolutionUpdate the affected mozilla-thunderbird, mozilla-thunderbird-enigmail and / or mozilla-thunderbird-enigmime packages.
