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.

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Thunderbird 24.x installed on the remote host is a version prior to 24.7. 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)

- There is a potential use-after-free issue in DirectWrite font handling. This may allow an attacker to potentially execute arbitrary code within the context of the user running the application. (CVE-2014-1551)

- Triggering the FireOnStateChange event has the potential to crash the application. This may lead to a use-after-free and an exploitable crash.
(CVE-2014-1555)

- When using the Cesium JavaScript library to generate WebGL content, the application may crash. This crash is potentially exploitable. (CVE-2014-1556)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 24.7 or later.
