Mozilla Thunderbird < 24.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8292
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.


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


Versions of Mozilla Thunderbird prior to 24.6 are unpatched against the following vulnerabilities :

- Use-after-free issue in the SMIL Animation Controller, among other use-after-free and out-of-bounds issues, which may be exploited via web content to induce a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2014-1541, CVE-2014-1536, CVE-2014-1537, CVE-2014-1538)
- Click-jacking that can be exploited due to cursor invisibility when leaving an embedded flash object (Note, only OS X is affected: CVE-2014-1539)
- Other miscellaneous memory safety hazards (CVE-2014-1533, CVE-2014-1534)


Upgrade to Thunderbird 24.6, or later.
