Synopsis

The remote Mac OS X host contains an email client that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird 7.x is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Certain invalid sequences are not handled properly in 'Shift-JIS' encoding, which can allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2011-3648)

- Profiling JavaScript files with many functions can cause the application to crash. It may be possible to trigger this behavior even when the debugging APIs are not being used. (CVE-2011-3650)

- Multiple memory safety issues exist. (CVE-2011-3651)

- An unchecked memory allocation failure can cause the application to crash. (CVE-2011-3652)

- An issue with WebGL graphics and GPU drivers can allow cross-origin image theft. (CVE-2011-3653)

- An error exists related to SVG 'mpath' linking to a non-SVG element, which can result in potentially exploitable application crashes. (CVE-2011-3654)

- An error in internal privilege checking can allow web content to obtain elevated privileges.
(CVE-2011-3655)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 8.0 or later.
