Mozilla Thunderbird < 1.5.0.13 Multiple Vulnerabilities (deprecated)

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4152

Synopsis

The remote host is vulnerable to a script injection attack.

Description

The remote version of Mozilla Thunderbird suffers from a flaw in the way that it handles 'about:blank' Javascript code. An attacker exploiting this flaw would need to be able to convince a Thunderbird user to open an email that populated 'about:blank' with malicious Javascript code. Successful exploitation would result in the attacker executing arbitrary Javascript on the local machine.

Solution

Upgrade to version 1.5.0.13 or higher.
