Ubuntu 12.04 LTS / 12.10 / 13.04 / 13.10 : thunderbird vulnerabilities (USN-2032-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 71036


The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.


Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user were tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could possibly exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, potentially execute arbitrary code, or lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2013-1741, CVE-2013-2566, CVE-2013-5605, CVE-2013-5607).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected thunderbird package.
