Mozilla Thunderbird < 31.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 81522


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


The version of Thunderbird installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 31.5. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- An information disclosure vulnerability exists related to the autocomplete feature that allows an attacker to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-0822)

- An out-of-bounds read and write issue exists when processing invalid SVG graphic files. This allows an attacker to disclose sensitive information.

- A use-after-free issue exists when running specific web content with 'IndexedDB' to create an index, resulting in a denial of service condition or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0831)

- An issue exists in the Mozilla updater in which DLL files in the current working directory or Windows temporary directories will be loaded, allowing the execution of arbitrary code. Note that hosts are only affected if the updater is not run by the Mozilla Maintenance Service. (CVE-2015-0833)

- Multiple unspecified memory safety issues exist within the browser engine. (CVE-2015-0835, CVE-2015-0836)


Upgrade to Thunderbird 31.5 or later.
