Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of Thunderbird ESR 17.x is earlier than 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.
(CVE-2013-1730)

- 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 can result in access restrictions being bypassed.
(CVE-2013-1737)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird ESR 17.0.9 or later.
