Debian DSA-1227-1 : mozilla-thunderbird - several vulnerabilities
High Nessus Plugin ID 23768
SynopsisThe remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.
DescriptionSeveral security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and derived products such as Mozilla Thunderbird. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following vulnerabilities :
- CVE-2006-4310 Tomas Kempinsky discovered that malformed FTP server responses could lead to denial of service.
- CVE-2006-5462 Ulrich Kuhn discovered that the correction for a cryptographic flaw in the handling of PKCS-1 certificates was incomplete, which allows the forgery of certificates.
- CVE-2006-5464 Jesse Ruderman and Martijn Wargers discovered several crashes in the layout engine, which might also allow execution of arbitrary code.
This update also addresses several crashes, which could be triggered by malicious websites and fixes a regression introduced in the previous Mozilla update.
SolutionUpgrade the mozilla-thunderbird package.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in version 1.0.4-2sarge13.
