critical Nessus Plugin ID 77502
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Thunderbird installed on the remote host is a version prior to 31.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple memory safety flaws exist within the browser engine. Exploiting these, an attacker can cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1553, CVE-2014-1562)

- A use-after-free vulnerability exists due to improper cycle collection when processing animated SVG content.
A remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1563)

- Memory is not properly initialized during GIF rendering.
Using a specially crafted web script, a remote attacker can exploit this to acquire sensitive information from the process memory. (CVE-2014-1564)

- The Web Audio API contains a flaw where audio timelines are properly created. Using specially crafted API calls, a remote attacker can exploit this to acquire sensitive information from the process memory or cause a denial of service. (CVE-2014-1565)

- A use-after-free vulnerability exists due to improper handling of text layout in directionality resolution.
A remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1567)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 31.1 or later.
