Thunderbird < 13.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

high Nessus Plugin ID 59405
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

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 13.0 and thus, is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An error exists in the ASN.1 decoder when handling zero length items that can lead to application crashes.
(CVE-2012-0441)

- Multiple memory corruption errors exist. (CVE-2012-1937, CVE-2012-1938)

- Two heap-based buffer overflows and one heap-based use- after-free error exist and are potentially exploitable.
(CVE-2012-1940, CVE-2012-1941, CVE-2012-1947)

- The inline-script blocking feature of the 'Content Security Policy' (CSP) does not properly block inline event handlers. This error allows remote attackers to more easily carry out cross-site scripting attacks.
(CVE-2012-1944)

- A use-after-free error exists related to replacing or inserting a node into a web document. (CVE-2012-1946)

- An error exists related to the certificate warning page that can allow 'clickjacking' thereby tricking a user into accepting unintended certificates. (CVE-2012-1964)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 13.0 or later.
