Synopsis

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

- An error related to 'onreadystatechange' and unmapped memory could cause application crashes and allow arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1690)

- The application sends data in the body of XMLHttpRequest (XHR) HEAD requests and could aid in cross-site request forgery attacks. (CVE-2013-1692)

- An error related to the processing of SVG content could allow a timing attack to disclose information across domains. (CVE-2013-1693)

- An error exists related to 'PreserveWrapper' and the 'preserved-wrapper' flag that could cause potentially exploitable application crashes. (CVE-2013-1694)

- An error exists related to the 'toString' and 'valueOf' methods that could allow 'XrayWrappers' to be bypassed.
(CVE-2013-1697)
