Description

The remote Oracle Linux 8 host has a package installed that is affected by a vulnerability as referenced in the ELSA-2020-5398 advisory.

  • When reading SMTP server status codes, Thunderbird writes an integer value to a position on the stack that is intended to contain just one byte. Depending on processor architecture and stack layout, this leads to stack corruption that may be exploitable. This vulnerability affects Thunderbird < 78.5.1. (CVE-2020-26970)

Note that Nessus has not tested for this issue but has instead relied only on the application's self-reported version number.
