Mozilla Thunderbird < 31.6 Multiple Vulnerabilities
High Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 8745
SynopsisThe remote host has an email client installed that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.
DescriptionVersions of Mozilla Thunderbird prior to 31.6 are prone to the following vulnerabilities :
- A privilege escalation vulnerability exists which relates to anchor navigation. A remote attacker can exploit this to bypass same-origin policy protections, allowing a possible execution of arbitrary scripts in a privileged context. (CVE-2015-0801)
- A cross-site request forgery (XSRF) vulnerability exists in the 'sendBeacon()' function due to cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) requests following 30x redirections. (CVE-2015-0807)
- A use-after-free vulnerability affects the 'AppendElements()' function when the Fluendo MP3 plugin for GStreamer is used. A remote attacker could exploit this to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via a specially crafted MP3 file. (CVE-2015-0813)
- Multiple memory safety issues exist within the browser engine. A remote attacker can exploit these to corrupt memory and possibly execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2015-0814, CVE-2015-0815)
SolutionUpgrade to Thunderbird 31.6, or later.
