Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA781] DSA-781-1 mozilla-thunderbird

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-781-1 mozilla-thunderbird

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Several problems have been discovered in Mozilla Thunderbird, the
standalone mail client of the Mozilla suite. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
problems:
Remote attackers could read portions of heap memory into a
Javascript string via the lambda replace method.
The Javascript interpreter could be tricked to continue execution
at the wrong memory address, which may permit attackers to cause a
denial of service (application crash) and possibly execute
arbitrary code.
Remote attackers could override certain properties or methods of
DOM nodes and gain rights.
Remote attackers could override certain properties or methods due
to missing proper limitation of Javascript eval and Script objects
and gain rights.
XML scripts ran even when Javascript disabled.
Missing input sanitising of InstallVersion.compareTo() can cause
the application to crash.
Remote attackers could steal sensitive information such as cookies
and passwords from web sites by accessing data in alien frames.
Remote attackers could modify certain tag properties of DOM nodes
that could lead to the execution of arbitrary script or code.
The Mozilla browser family does not properly clone base objects,
which permits remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.
The old stable distribution (woody) is not affected by these problems
since it does not contain Mozilla Thunderbird packages.
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.2-2.sarge1.0.6.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.6-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your Mozilla Thunderbird package.
