openSUSE Security Update : MozillaThunderbird (MozillaThunderbird-333)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 39894

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

This update brings the Mozilla Thunderbird E-Mail program to version 2.0.0.18.

It fixes following security problems :

CVE-2008-5012 / MFSA 2008-48: Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 do not properly change the source URI when processing a canvas element and an HTTP redirect, which allows remote attackers to bypass the same origin policy and access arbitrary images that are not directly accessible to the attacker. NOTE: this issue can be leveraged to enumerate software on the client by performing redirections related to moz-icon.

CVE-2008-5014 / MFSA 2008-50

jslock.cpp in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.2, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by modifying the window.__proto__.__proto__ object in a way that causes a lock on a non-native object, which triggers an assertion failure related to the OBJ_IS_NATIVE function.

CVE-2008-5016 / MFSA 2008-52 :

The layout engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via multiple vectors that trigger an assertion failure or other consequences.

CVE-2008-5017 / MFSA 2008-52: Integer overflow in xpcom/io/nsEscape.cpp in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unknown vectors.

CVE-2008-5018 / MFSA 2008-52: The JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via vectors related to 'insufficient class checking' in the Date class. CVE-2008-5019 / MFSA 2008-53: The session restore feature in Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4 and 2.x before 2.0.0.18 allows remote attackers to violate the same origin policy to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks and execute arbitrary JavaScript with chrome privileges via unknown vectors.

CVE-2008-5021 / MFSA 2008-55: nsFrameManager in Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) and possibly execute arbitrary code by modifying properties of a file input element while it is still being initialized, then using the blur method to access uninitialized memory.

CVE-2008-5022 / MFSA 2008-56: The nsXMLHttpRequest::NotifyEventListeners method in Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to bypass the same-origin policy and execute arbitrary script via multiple listeners, which bypass the inner window check.

CVE-2008-5024 / MFSA 2008-58: Mozilla Firefox 3.x before 3.0.4, Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 do not properly escape quote characters used for XML processing, allows remote attackers to conduct XML injection attacks via the default namespace in an E4X document.

CVE-2008-5052 / MFSA 2008-52: The AppendAttributeValue function in the JavaScript engine in Mozilla Firefox 2.x before 2.0.0.18, Thunderbird 2.x before 2.0.0.18, and SeaMonkey 1.x before 1.1.13 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (crash) via unknown vectors that trigger memory corruption, as demonstrated by e4x/extensions/regress-410192.js.

MFSA 2008-59: Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky reported that a malicious mail message might be able to glean personal information about the recipient from the mailbox URI (such as computer account name) if the mail recipient has enabled JavaScript in mail. If a malicious mail is forwarded 'in-line' to a recipient who has enabled JavaScript, then comments added by the forwarder could be accessed by scripts in the message and potentially revealed to the original malicious author if that message has also been allowed to load remote content. Scripts in mail messages no longer have access to the DOM properties .documentURI and .textContent.

Solution

Update the affected MozillaThunderbird packages.
