Thunderbird 3.1 < 3.1.16 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)
High Nessus Plugin ID 56757
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host contains an email client that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe installed version of Thunderbird 3.1 is earlier than 3.1.16. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :
- There is an error within the JSSubScriptLoader that incorrectly unwraps 'XPCNativeWrappers'. By tricking a user into installing a malicious plug-in, an attacker could exploit this issue to execute arbitrary code.
- Certain invalid sequences are not handled properly in 'Shift-JIS' encoding, which can allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2011-3648)
SolutionUpgrade to Thunderbird 3.1.16 or later.
