Mozilla Thunderbird < 13.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 6498
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 13.0 are affected by the following security issues :

- An error exists in the ASN.1 decoder when handling zero length items that can lead to application crashes. (CVE-2012-0441)
- Multiple memory corruption errors exist. (CVE-2012-1937, CVE-2012-1038)
- Two heap-based buffer overflows and one heap-based use-after-free error exist and are potentially exploitable. (CVE-2012-1940, CVE-2012-1941, CVE-2012-1947)
- Two arbitrary DLL load issues exist related to the application update and update service functionality. (CVE-2012-1942, CVE-2012-1943)
- The inline-script blocking feature of the 'Content Security Policy' (CSP) does not properly block inline event handlers. This error allows remote attackers to more easily carry out cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2012-1944)
- A use-after-free error exists related to replacing or inserting a node into a web document. (CVE-2012-1946)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 13.0 or later.
