Mozilla Thunderbird < 9.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities (deprecated)

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6110

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Mozilla Thunderbird prior to 9.0 are affected by the following security issues :

- An out-of-bounds memory access error exists in the 'SVG' implementation and can be triggered when 'SVG' elements are removed during a 'DOMAttrModified' event handler. (CVE-2011-3658)
- Various memory safety errors exist that can lead to memory corruption and possible code execution. (CVE-2011-3660)
- An error exists in the 'YARR' regular expression library that can cause application crashers when handling certain JavaScript statements. (CVE-2011-3661)
- It is possible to detect keystrokes using 'SVG' animation 'accesskey' events even when JavaScript is disabled. (CVE-2011-3663)
- AN error exists related to plugins that can allow a null pointer to be dereferenced when a plugin deletes its containing DOM frame during a call from that frame. It may be possible for a non-null pointer to be dereferenced thereby opening up the potential for further exploitation. (CVE-2011-3664)
- It is possible to crash the application when 'OGG' 'video' elements are scaled to extreme sizes. (CVE-2011-3665)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 9.0 or later.
