High Nessus Plugin ID 27124

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update of Mozilla Thunderbird fixes the security problems fixed in version 1.5.0.4: MFSA 2006-31/CVE-2006-2787: EvalInSandbox in Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 allows remote attackers to gain privileges via JavaScript that calls the valueOf method on objects that were created outside of the sandbox. MFSA 2006-32/CVE-2006-2780: Integer overflow in Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via 'jsstr tagify,' which leads to memory corruption. MFSA 2006-32/CVE-2006-2779:
Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code via (1) nested <option> tags in a select tag, (2) a DOMNodeRemoved mutation event, (3) 'Content-implemented tree views,' (4) BoxObjects, (5) the XBL implementation, (6) an iframe that attempts to remove itself, which leads to memory corruption. MFSA 2006-33/CVE-2006-2786: HTTP response smuggling vulnerability in Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4, when used with certain proxy servers, allows remote attackers to cause Firefox to interpret certain responses as if they were responses from two different sites via (1) invalid HTTP response headers with spaces between the header name and the colon, which might not be ignored in some cases, or (2) HTTP 1.1 headers through an HTTP 1.0 proxy, which are ignored by the proxy but processed by the client. MFSA 2006-35/CVE-2006-2775: Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 associates XUL attributes with the wrong URL under certain unspecified circumstances, which might allow remote attackers to bypass restrictions by causing a persisted string to be associated with the wrong URL. MFSA 2006-37/CVE-2006-2776: Certain privileged UI code in Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 calls content-defined setters on an object prototype, which allows remote attackers to execute code at a higher privilege than intended. MFSA 2006-38/CVE-2006-2778: The crypto.signText function in Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code via certain optional Certificate Authority name arguments, which causes an invalid array index and triggers a buffer overflow. MFSA 2006-40/CVE-2006-2781: Double-free vulnerability in Mozilla Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 and SeaMonkey before 1.0.2 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (hang) and possibly execute arbitrary code via a VCard that contains invalid base64 characters.
MFSA 2006-42/CVE-2006-2783: Mozilla Firefox and Thunderbird before 1.5.0.4 strips the Unicode Byte-order-Mark (BOM) from a UTF-8 page before the page is passed to the parser, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a BOM sequence in the middle of a dangerous tag such as SCRIPT.

Solution

Update the affected MozillaThunderbird packages.
