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 3.0.11. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory corruption issues could lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2010-74)
- On the Windows platform, when 'document.write()' is called with a very long string, a buffer overflow could be triggered. (MFSA 2010-75)

- Downloadable fonts could expose vulnerabilities in the underlying OS font code. (MFSA 2010-78)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 3.0.11 or later.
