Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mozilla-thunderbird (MDKSA-2006:078)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 21284
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Mozilla Thunderbird email client that could allow a remote attacker to craft malicious web emails that could take advantage of these issues to execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges, spoof content, and steal local files, or other information. As well, some of these vulnerabilities can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running the program.

As well, two crasher bugs have been fixed as well.

The updated packages have been patched to fix these problems.

Solution

Update the affected mozilla-thunderbird, mozilla-thunderbird-enigmail and / or mozilla-thunderbird-enigmime packages.
