high Nessus Plugin ID 35977
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Windows host contains a mail client that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 2.0.0.21. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that could lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2009-01)

- By exploiting stability bugs in the browser engine, it might be possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote system under certain conditions. (MFSA 2009-07)

- It might be possible for a website to read arbitrary XML data from another domain by using nsIRDFService and a cross-domain redirect. (MFSA 2009-09)

- Vulnerabilities in the PNG libraries used by Mozilla could be exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-10)

- A URI-spoofing vulnerability exists because the application fails to adequately handle specific characters in IDN subdomains. (MFSA 2009-15)

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.21 or later.
