Mozilla Thunderbird < 2.0.0.23 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5353
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 2.0.0.23 are affected by an SSL spoofing attack. The client can be fooled into trusting a malicious SSL server certificate with a null character in the host name. (MFSA 2009-42)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 2.0.0.23 or later.
