Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200608-04 (Mozilla Thunderbird: Multiple vulnerabilities)

The following vulnerabilities have been reported:
Benjamin Smedberg discovered that chrome URLss could be made to     reference remote files.
Developers in the Mozilla community     looked for and fixed several crash bugs to improve the stability of     Mozilla clients.
'shutdown' reports that cross-site scripting     (XSS) attacks could be performed using the construct     XPCNativeWrapper(window).Function(...), which created a function that     appeared to belong to the window in question even after it had been     navigated to the target site.
'shutdown' reports that scripts     granting the UniversalBrowserRead privilege can leverage that into the     equivalent of the far more powerful UniversalXPConnect since they are     allowed to 'read' into a privileged context.
'moz_bug_r_a4'     discovered that Named JavaScript functions have a parent object created     using the standard Object() constructor (ECMA-specified behavior) and     that this constructor can be redefined by script (also ECMA-specified     behavior).
Igor Bukanov and shutdown found additional places     where an untimely garbage collection could delete a temporary object     that was in active use.
Georgi Guninski found potential     integer overflow issues with long strings in the toSource() methods of     the Object, Array and String objects as well as string function     arguments.
H. D. Moore reported a testcase that was able to     trigger a race condition where JavaScript garbage collection deleted a     temporary variable still being used in the creation of a new Function     object.
A malicious page can hijack native DOM methods on a     document object in another domain, which will run the attacker's script     when called by the victim page.
Secunia Research has     discovered a vulnerability which is caused due to an memory corruption     error within the handling of simultaneously happening XPCOM events.
This leads to use of a deleted timer object.

Impact :

A user can be enticed to open specially crafted URLs, visit webpages     containing malicious JavaScript or execute a specially crafted script.
These events could lead to the execution of arbitrary code, or the     installation of malware on the user's computer.

Workaround :

There is no known workaround at this time.
