New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Mozilla Thunderbird prior to 2.0.0.21 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 2009-01)
- By exploiting stability bugs in the browser engine, it might be possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote system under certain conditions. (MFSA 2009-07)
- It may be possible for a website to read arbitrary XML data from another domain by using nsIRDFService and a cross-domain redirect. (MFSA 2009-09)
- Vulnerabilities in the PNG libraries used by Mozilla could be exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-10)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 2.0.0.21 or higher.
