Description

The installed version of Thunderbird is a version prior to 24.0. It is, therefore, potentially affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • Memory issues exist in the browser engine that could allow for denial of service or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1718, CVE-2013-1719)

  • The HTML5 Tree Builder does not properly maintain states, which could result in a denial of service or possible arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1720)

  • Multiple use-after-free problems exist, which could result in denial of service attacks or arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1722, CVE-2013-1724, CVE-2013-1735, CVE-2013-1736, CVE-2013-1738)

  • The NativeKey widget does not properly terminate key messages, possibly leading to a denial of service attack. (CVE-2013-1723)

  • Incorrect scope handling for JavaScript objects with compartments could result in denial of service or possibly arbitrary code execution. (CVE-2013-1725)

  • Local users can gain the same privileges as the Mozilla Updater because the application does not ensure exclusive access to the update file. An attacker could exploit this by inserting a malicious file into the update file. (CVE-2013-1726)

  • Sensitive information can be obtained via unspecified vectors because the IonMonkey JavaScript does not properly initialize memory. (CVE-2013-1728)

  • A JavaScript compartment mismatch could result in a denial of service or arbitrary code execution. Versions of Firefox 20 or greater are not susceptible to the arbitrary code execution mentioned above. (CVE-2013-1730)

  • A buffer overflow is possible because of an issue with multi-column layouts. (CVE-2013-1732)

  • An object is not properly identified during use of user-defined getter methods on DOM proxies. This could result in access restrictions being bypassed. (CVE-2013-1737)

  • An input validation error exists related to email messages containing HTML and iframes and the action of replying to or forwarding such messages that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2013-6674)

  • An input validation error exists related to email messages containing HTML and object or embed elements that could allow cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2014-2018)
