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


The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 3.0.5. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- A memory corruption vulnerability can lead to arbitrary code execution if garbage collection is carefully timed after DOM nodes are moved between documents.
(MFSA 2010-25)

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-26)

- An error in 'nsGenericDOMDataNode' allows a buffer overflow in certain DOM nodes leading to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-29)

- An error in a XSLT node sorting function contains an integer overflow leading to application crashes and possible arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-30)


Upgrade to Thunderbird 3.0.5 or later.
