Mozilla Thunderbird < 31.5 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8676
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 31.5 are prone to the following vulnerabilities :

- Multiple unspecified memory safety issues exist within the engine. (CVE-2015-0835, CVE-2015-0836)
- An issue exists in the Mozilla updater in which DLL files in the current working directory or Windows temporary directories will be loaded, allowing the execution of arbitrary code. Note that hosts are only affected if the updater is not run by the Mozilla Maintenance Service. (CVE-2015-0833)
- A use-after-free issue exists when running specific web content with 'IndexedDB' to create an index, resulting in a denial of service condition or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2015-0831)
- An out-of-bounds read and write issue exists when processing invalid SVG graphic files. This allows an attacker to disclose sensitive information. (CVE-2015-0827)
- An information disclosure vulnerability exists related to the autocomplete feature that allows an attacker to read arbitrary files. (CVE-2015-0822)

Solution

Upgrade to Thunderbird 31.5, or later.
