    NASL id GENTOO_GLSA-200701-04.NASL
    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-04 (SeaMonkey: Multiple vulnerabilities) An anonymous researcher found evidence of memory corruption in the way SeaMonkey handles certain types of SVG comment DOM nodes. Georgi Guninski and David Bienvenu discovered buffer overflows in the processing of long 'Content-Type:' and long non-ASCII MIME email headers. Additionally, Frederik Reiss discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the conversion of a CSS cursor. Several other issues with memory corruption were also fixed. SeaMonkey also contains less severe vulnerabilities involving JavaScript and Java. Impact : An attacker could entice a user to load malicious JavaScript or a malicious web page with a SeaMonkey application, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code with the rights of the user running those products. An attacker could also perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of sensitive information, like user credentials. Note that the execution of JavaScript or Java applets is disabled by default in the SeaMonkey email client, and enabling it is strongly discouraged. Workaround : There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.

(CVE-2006-6497, CVE-2006-6498, CVE-2006-6499, CVE-2006-6501, CVE-2006-6502, CVE-2006-6504) Various flaws have been reported that allow an attacker to bypass Firefox's internal XSS protections by tricking the user into opening a malicious web page containing JavaScript. (CVE-2006-6503). Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

  • NASL family Oracle Linux Local Security Checks
    NASL id ORACLELINUX_ELSA-2006-0760.NASL
    description From Red Hat Security Advisory 2006:0760 : Updated thunderbird packages that fix several security bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processes certain malformed JavaScript code. A malicious web page could cause the execution of JavaScript code in such a way that could cause Thunderbird to crash or execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird; this issue is not exploitable without enabling JavaScript. (CVE-2006-6498, CVE-2006-6501, CVE-2006-6502, CVE-2006-6503, CVE-2006-6504) Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird renders web pages. A malicious web page could cause the browser to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2006-6497) A heap based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way Thunderbird parses the Content-Type mail header. A malicious mail message could cause the Thunderbird client to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2006-6505) Users of Thunderbird are advised to apply this update, which contains Thunderbird version 1.5.0.9 that corrects these issues.

    title Mozilla Thunderbird < 1.5.0.9 Multiple Vulnerabilities
  • NASL family Gentoo Local Security Checks
    NASL id GENTOO_GLSA-200701-03.NASL
    description The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200701-03 (Mozilla Thunderbird: Multiple vulnerabilities) Georgi Guninski and David Bienvenu discovered buffer overflows in the processing of long 'Content-Type:' and long non-ASCII MIME headers. Additionally, Frederik Reiss discovered a heap-based buffer overflow in the conversion of a CSS cursor. Different vulnerabilities involving memory corruption in the browser engine were also fixed. Mozilla Thunderbird also contains less severe vulnerabilities involving JavaScript and Java. Impact : An attacker could entice a user to view a specially crafted email that will trigger one of these vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the execution of arbitrary code. An attacker could also perform cross-site scripting attacks, leading to the exposure of sensitive information, like user credentials. Note that the execution of JavaScript or Java applets is disabled by default and enabling it is strongly discouraged. Workaround : There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.
