critical Nessus Plugin ID 65803
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 multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 17.0.5 and is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Various memory safety issues exist. (CVE-2013-0788, CVE-2013-0789)

- An out-of-bounds memory read error exists related to 'CERT_DecodeCertPackage' and certificate decoding.
(CVE-2013-0791)

- A memory corruption error exists related to PNG image files when 'gfx.color_management.enablev4' is manually enabled in the application's configuration.
(CVE-2013-0792)

- An error exists related to navigation, history and improper 'baseURI' property values that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-0793)

- An error exists related to tab-modal dialog boxes that could be used in phishing attacks. (CVE-2013-0794)

- An error exists related to 'cloneNode' that can allow 'System Only Wrapper' (SOW) to be bypassed, thus violating the same origin policy and possibly leading to privilege escalation and code execution.
(CVE-2013-0795)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists related to the Cairo graphics library. (CVE-2013-0800)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 17.0.5 or later.
