Thunderbird ESR 17.x < 17.0.9 Multiple Vulnerabilities (Mac OS X)

High Nessus Plugin ID 69990


The remote Mac OS X host contains a mail client that is potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The installed version of Thunderbird ESR 17.x is prior to 17.0.9 and is, therefore, potentially affected the following vulnerabilities :

- Memory issues exist in the browser engine that could allow for denial of service or arbitrary code execution.
(CVE-2013-1718, CVE-2013-1719)

- Multiple use-after-free problems exist that could result in denial of service attacks or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1735, CVE-2013-1736)

- A buffer overflow is possible because of an issue with multi-column layouts. (CVE-2013-1732)

- A JavaScript compartment mismatch could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. Versions of Firefox 20 or greater are not susceptible to the arbitrary code execution mentioned above.

- Incorrect scope handling for JavaScript objects with compartments could result in denial of service or possibly arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1725)

- An object is not properly identified during use of user-defined getter methods on DOM proxies. This could result in access restrictions being bypassed.


Upgrade to Thunderbird ESR 17.0.9 or later.
