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: 6.6
SynopsisThe remote Windows host contains a mail client that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 220.127.116.11. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :
- When an Adobe Flash file is loaded via the 'view-source:' scheme, the Flash plugin misinterprets the origin of the content as localhost. An attacker can leverage this to launch cross-site request forgery attacks. It is also possible to exploit this to place cookie-like objects on victim's computers.
- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities could potentially be exploited to execute arbitrary code.
- It may be possible to tamper with SSL data via non-200 responses to proxy CONNECT requests. (MFSA 2009-27)
- It may be possible to crash Thunderbird while viewing a 'multipart/alternative' mail message with a 'text/enhanced' part. (MFSA 2009-33)
SolutionUpgrade to Mozilla Thunderbird 18.104.22.168 or later.
