New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 5.9
SynopsisThe remote Mac OS X host contains a mail client that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.
DescriptionThe version of Thunderbird installed on the remote host is a version prior to 31.0. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :
- When a pair of NSSCertificate structures are added to a trust domain and then one of them is removed during use, a use-after-free error occurs which may cause the application to crash. This crash is potentially exploitable. (CVE-2014-1544)
- There are multiple memory safety hazards within the browser engine. These hazards may lead to memory corruption vulnerabilities, which may allow attackers to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1547, CVE-2014-1548)
- A buffer overflow exists when interacting with the Web Audio buffer during playback due to an error with the allocation of memory for the buffer. This may lead to a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2014-1549)
- A use-after-free exists in Web Audio due to the way control messages are handled. This may lead to a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2014-1550)
- There is an issue with the IFRAME sandbox same-origin access policy which allows sandboxed content to access other content from the same origin without approval.
This may lead to a same-origin-bypass vulnerability.
- Triggering the FireOnStateChange event has the potential to crash the application. This may lead to a use-after-free and an exploitable crash.
- There is a flaw in the Skia library when scaling images of high quality. If the image data is discarded while being processed, the library may crash. This crash is potentially exploitable. (CVE-2014-1557)
- There are multiple issues with using invalid characters in various certificates. These invalid characters may cause certificates to be parsed incorrectly which may lead to the inability to use valid SSL certificates. (CVE-2014-1558, CVE-2014-1559, CVE-2014-1560)
SolutionUpgrade to Thunderbird 31.0 or later.
