Mozilla Thunderbird < 52.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 99968

Synopsis

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

Description

The version of Mozilla Thunderbird installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 52.1 It is, therefore, affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple flaws exist in the Libevent library, within files evdns.c and evutil.c, due to improper validation of input when handling IP address strings, empty base name strings, and DNS packets. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit these to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2016-10195, CVE-2016-10196, CVE-2016-10197)

- Multiple memory corruption issues exist that allow an unauthenticated, remote attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5429, CVE-2017-5430)

- A use-after-free error exists in input text selection that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5432)

- A use-after-free error exists in the SMIL animation functions when handling animation elements. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5433)

- A use-after-free error exists when redirecting focus handling that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5434)

- A use-after-free error exists in design mode interactions when handling transaction processing in the editor. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5435)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists in the Graphite 2 library when handling specially crafted Graphite fonts.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5436)

- A use-after-free error exists in the nsAutoPtr() function during XSLT processing due to the result handler being held by a freed handler. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5438)

- A use-after-free error exists in the Length() function in nsTArray when handling template parameters during XSLT processing. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5439)

- A use-after-free error exists in the txExecutionState destructor when processing XSLT content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5440)

- A use-after-free error exists when holding a selection during scroll events. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-5441)

- A use-after-free error exists when changing styles in DOM elements that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5442)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists while decoding improperly formed BinHex format archives that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-5443)

- A buffer overflow condition exists while parsing application/http-index-format format content due to improper validation of user-supplied input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via improperly formatted data, to disclose out-of-bounds memory content. (CVE-2017-5444)

- A flaw exists in nsDirIndexParser.cpp when parsing application/http-index-format format content in which uninitialized values are used to create an array. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose memory contents. (CVE-2017-5445)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists when handling HTTP/2 DATA connections to a server that sends DATA frames with incorrect content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit to cause a denial of service condition or the disclosure of memory contents. (CVE-2017-5446)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists when processing glyph widths during text layout. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the disclosure of memory contents.
(CVE-2017-5447)

- A flaw exists when handling bidirectional Unicode text in conjunction with CSS animations that allows an unauthenticated, remote attacker to cause a denial of service condition or the execution or arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-5449)

- A flaw exists in the handling of specially crafted 'onblur' events. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted event, to spoof the address bar, making the loaded site appear to be different from the one actually loaded. (CVE-2017-5451)

- A flaw exists in the FileSystemSecurity::Forget() function within file FileSystemSecurity.cpp when using the File Picker due to improper sanitization of input containing path traversal sequences. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to bypass file system access protections in the sandbox and read arbitrary files on the local file system. (CVE-2017-5454)

- A buffer overflow condition exists in WebGL when handling web content due to improper validation of certain input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5459)

- A use-after-free error exists in frame selection when handling a specially crafted combination of script content and key presses by the user. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-5460)

- An out-of-bounds write error exists in the Network Security Services (NSS) library during Base64 decoding operations due to insufficient memory being allocated to a buffer. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5461)

- A flaw exists in the Network Security Services (NSS) library during DRBG number generation due to the internal state V not correctly carrying bits over. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to potentially cause predictable random number generation.
(CVE-2017-5462)

- A flaw exists when making changes to DOM content in the accessibility tree due to improper validation of certain input, which can lead to the DOM tree becoming out of sync with the accessibility tree. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to corrupt memory, resulting in a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5464)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in ConvolvePixel when processing SVG content, which allows for otherwise inaccessible memory being copied into SVG graphic content. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to disclose memory contents or cause a denial of service condition. (CVE-2017-5465)

- A cross-site scripting (XSS) vulnerability exists due to improper handling of data:text/html URL redirects when a reload is triggered, which causes the reloaded data:text/html page to have its origin set incorrectly.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this, via a specially crafted request, to execute arbitrary script code in a user's browser session. (CVE-2017-5466)

- A memory corruption issue exists when rendering Skia content outside of the bounds of a clipping region due to improper validation of certain input. An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to cause a denial of service condition or the execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5467)

- A buffer overflow condition exists in the FLEX generated code due to improper validation of user-supplied input.
An unauthenticated, remote attacker can exploit this to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5469)

Solution

Upgrade to Mozilla Thunderbird version 52.1 or later.
