High Nessus Plugin ID 58896

New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)

Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.

VPR Score: 8.8

Synopsis

The remote Mac OS X host contains a mail client that is potentially affected by several vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 12.0 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An error exists with handling JavaScript errors that can lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2011-1187)

- An off-by-one error exists in the 'OpenType Sanitizer' which can lead to out-bounds-reads and possible code execution. (CVE-2011-3062)

- Memory safety issues exist that could lead to arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2012-0467, CVE-2012-0468)

- A use-after-free error exists related to 'IDBKeyRange' of 'indexedDB'. (CVE-2012-0469)

- Heap-corruption errors exist related to 'gfxImageSurface' which can lead to possible code execution. (CVE-2012-0470)

- A multi-octet encoding issue exists which could allow cross-site scripting attacks as certain octets in multibyte character sets can destroy following octets.
(CVE-2012-0471)

- An error exists in 'WebGLBuffer' that can lead to the reading of illegal video memory. (CVE-2012-0473)

- An unspecified error can allow URL bar spoofing.
(CVE-2012-0474)

- IPv6 addresses and cross-site 'XHR' or 'WebSocket' connections on non-standard ports can allow this application to send ambiguous origin headers. (CVE-2012-0475)

- A decoding issue exists related to 'ISO-2022-KR' and 'ISO-2022-CN' character sets which could lead to cross- site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-0477)
- An error exists related to 'WebGL' and 'texImage2D' that can allow application crashes and possibly code execution when 'JSVAL_TO_OBJECT' is used on ordinary objects. (CVE-2012-0478)

- Address bar spoofing is possible when 'Atom XML' or 'RSS' data is loaded over HTTPS leading to phishing attacks. (CVE-2012-0479)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 12.0 or later.
