Ubuntu 5.10 / 6.06 LTS / 6.10 : mozilla-thunderbird vulnerabilities (USN-431-1)
High Nessus Plugin ID 28025
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe SSLv2 protocol support in the NSS library did not sufficiently check the validity of public keys presented with a SSL certificate. A malicious SSL website using SSLv2 could potentially exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the user's privileges. (CVE-2007-0008)
The SSLv2 protocol support in the NSS library did not sufficiently verify the validity of client master keys presented in an SSL client certificate. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code in a server application that uses the NSS library.
Various flaws have been reported that could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with user privileges by tricking the user into opening a malicious web page. (CVE-2007-0775, CVE-2007-0776, CVE-2007-0777).
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
