Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The remote host is missing the patch for the advisory MDKSA-2006:078 (mozilla-thunderbird).



A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Mozilla Thunderbird
email client that could permit a remote attacker to craft malicious web emails
that could take advantage of these issues to execute arbitrary code with
elevated rights, spoof content, and steal local files, or other
information. As well, some of these vulnerabilities can be exploited to execute
arbitrary code with the rights of the user running the program. As well,
two crasher bugs have been fixed as well. The updated packages have been
patched to fix these problems.
