Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 3.0.4. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution.
(MFSA 2010-16)

- A select event handler for XUL tree items can be called after the item is deleted. (MFSA 2010-17)

- An error exists in the way '<option>' elements are inserted into an XUL tree '<optgroup>' (MFSA 2010-18)

- Session renegotiations are not handled properly, which can be exploited to insert arbitrary plaintext by a man-in-the-middle. (MFSA 2010-22)

- XML documents fail to call certain security checks when loading new content. (MFSA 2010-24)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 3.0.4 or later.
