Scientific Linux Security Update : thunderbird on SL5.x, SL4.x, SL3.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 60270
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.
Several flaws were found in the way in which Thunderbird displayed malformed HTML mail content. An HTML mail message containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2007-1095, CVE-2007-3844, CVE-2007-3511, CVE-2007-5334)
A flaw was found in the Thunderbird sftp protocol handler. A malicious HTML mail message could access data from a remote sftp site, possibly stealing sensitive user data. (CVE-2007-5337)
A request-splitting flaw was found in the way in which Thunderbird generates a digest authentication request. If a user opened a specially crafted URL, it was possible to perform cross-site scripting attacks, web cache poisoning, or other, similar exploits.
SolutionUpdate the affected thunderbird package.
