Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 16.0.2 and is therefore potentially affected by the following security issues :
- The true value of 'window.location' can be shadowed by user content through the use of the 'valueOf' method, which can be combined with some plugins to perform cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-4194)

- The 'CheckURL' function of 'window.location' can be forced to return the wrong calling document and principal, allowing a cross-site scripting attack.
(CVE-2012-4195)

- It is possible to use property injection by prototype to bypass security wrapper protections on the 'Location' object, allowing the cross-origin reading of the 'Location' object. (CVE-2012-4196)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 16.0.2 or later.
