New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 6.0 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Several memory safety bugs exist in the browser engine that may permit remote code execution. (CVE-2011-2985, CVE-2011-2989, CVE-2011-2991, CVE-2011-2992)

- A dangling pointer vulnerability exists in an SVG text manipulation routine. (CVE-2011-0084)

- A buffer overflow vulnerability exists in WebGL when using an overly long shader program. (CVE-2011-2988)

- A heap overflow vulnerability exists in WebGL's ANGLE library. (CVE-2011-2987)

- A cross-origin data theft vulnerability exists when using canvas and Windows D2D hardware acceleration.
(CVE-2011-2986)

- There is an error in the implementation of the 'window.location' JavaScript object when creating named frames. This can be exploited to bypass the same-origin policy and potentially conduct cross-site scripting attacks.(CVE-2011-2999)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 6.0 or later.
