Ubuntu 6.06 LTS : mozilla-thunderbird vulnerabilities (USN-329-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 27908

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.

Description

Various flaws have been reported that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with user privileges by tricking the user into opening a malicious email containing JavaScript. Please note that JavaScript is disabled by default for emails, and it is not recommended to enable it. (CVE-2006-3113, CVE-2006-3802, CVE-2006-3803, CVE-2006-3805, CVE-2006-3806, CVE-2006-3807, CVE-2006-3809, CVE-2006-3810, CVE-2006-3811, CVE-2006-3812)

A buffer overflow has been discovered in the handling of .vcard files.
By tricking a user into importing a malicious vcard into his contacts, this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2006-3084)

The 'enigmail' plugin has been updated to work with the new Thunderbird version.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
