Mozilla Thunderbird 10.x < 10.0.3 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6352

Synopsis

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

Description

Versions of Firefox 10.x prior to 10.0.3 are affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple memory corruption issues. By tricking a user into visiting a specially crafted page, these issues may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code in the context of the affected application. (CVE-2012-0454, CVE-2012-0457, CVE-2012-0459, CVE-2012-0461, CVE-2012-0462, CVE-2012-0463, CVE-2012-0464)
- An HTTP Header security bypass vulnerability that can be leveraged by attackers to bypass certain security restrictions and conduct cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-0451)
- A security bypass vulnerability that can be exploited by an attacker if the victim can be tricked into setting a new home page by dragging a specially crafted link to the 'home' button URL, which will set the user's home page to a 'javascript:' URL. (CVE-2012-0458)
- An information disclosure vulnerability due to an out of bounds read in SVG filters. (CVE-2012-0456)
- A cross-site scripting vulnerability that can be triggered by dragging and dropping 'javascript:' links onto a frame. (CVE-2012-0455)
- 'window.fullScreen' is writeable by untrusted content, allowing attackers to perform UI spoofing attacks. (CVE-2012-0460)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 10.0.3 or later.
