New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 3.0.6. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory safety bugs could result in memory corruption, potentially resulting in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-34)

- The array class used to store CSS values is affected by an integer overflow vulnerability. (MFSA 2010-39)

- An integer overflow vulnerability exists in the 'selection' attribute of XUL <tree> element.
(MFSA 2010-40)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability in Mozilla graphics code could lead to arbitrary code execution.
(MFSA 2010-41)

- It is possible to read and parse resources from other domains even when the content is not valid JavaScript leading to cross-domain data disclosure. (MFSA 2010-42)

- It is possible to read data across domains by injecting bogus CSS selectors into a target site.
(MFSA 2010-46)

- Potentially sensitive URL parameters could be leaked across domains via script errors. (MFSA 2010-47)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 3.0.6 or later.
