GLSA-200605-09 : Mozilla Thunderbird: Multiple vulnerabilities
Critical Nessus Plugin ID 21351
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200605-09 (Mozilla Thunderbird: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Several vulnerabilities were found and fixed in Mozilla Thunderbird.
A remote attacker could craft malicious emails that would leverage these issues to inject and execute arbitrary script code with elevated privileges, steal local files or other information from emails, and spoof content. Some of these vulnerabilities might even be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running Thunderbird.
There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.
