Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 4806

Synopsis

The remote host has an email client installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

Versions of Mozilla Thunderbird prior to 2.0.0.19 are affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that may lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2008-60)
- XBL bindings can be used to read data from other domains. (MFSA 2008-61)
- Sensitive data may be disclosed in an XHR response when an XMLHttpRequest is made to a same-origin resource, which 302 redirects to a resource in a different domain. (MFSA 2008-64)
- A website may be able to access a limited amount of data from a different domain by loading a same-domain JavaScript URL that redirects to an off-domain target resource containing data that is not parsable as JavaScript. (MFSA 2008-65)
- Errors arise when parsing URLs with leading whitespace and control characters. (MFSA 2008-66)
- An escaped null byte is ignored by the CSS parser and treated as if it was not present in the CSS input string. (MFSA 2008-67)
- XSS and JavaScript privilege escalation are possible. (MFSA 2008-68)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 2.0.0.19 or higher.
