Description

The version of Thunderbird installed on the remote Windows host is prior to 31.4. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

  • Multiple unspecified memory safety issues exist within the browser engine. (CVE-2014-8634, CVE-2014-8635)

  • A flaw exists in 'navigator.sendBeacon()' in which it does not follow the cross-origin resource sharing specification. This results in requests from 'sendBeacon()' lacking an 'origin' header. This allows malicious sites to perform XSRF attacks. (CVE-2014-8638)

  • A flaw exists when receiving 407 Proxy Authentication responses with a 'set-cookie' header. This can allow a session-fixation attack. (CVE-2014-8639)
