Mozilla Thunderbird < 12.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 58900


The remote Windows host contains a mail client that is potentially affected by several vulnerabilities.


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 could lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2011-1187)

- An off-by-one error exists in the 'OpenType Sanitizer' that could 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' that could lead to possible code execution. (CVE-2012-0470)

- A multi-octet encoding issue exists that could allow cross-site scripting attacks as certain octets in multibyte character sets can destroy following octets.

- An error exists related to font rendering with 'cairo- dwrite' that could cause memory corruption leading to crashes and potentially code execution. (CVE-2012-0472)

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

- An unspecified error could allow URL bar spoofing.

- IPv6 addresses and cross-site 'XHR' or 'WebSocket' connections on non-standard ports could 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 that could lead to cross- site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-0477)
- An error exists related to 'WebGL' and 'texImage2D' that could 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)


Upgrade to Thunderbird 12.0 or later.
