New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 6.7

DescriptionGeorgi Guninski, Michal Zalewsk and Chris Evans discovered that the same-origin check in Thunderbird could be bypassed. If a user were tricked into opening a malicious website, an attacker could obtain private information from data stored in the images, or discover information about software on the user's computer. (CVE-2008-5012)
Chris Evans discovered that Thunderbird did not properly parse E4X documents, leading to quote characters in the namespace not being properly escaped. (CVE-2008-5024)
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.
