CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:M/Au:N/C:C/I:C/A:C

Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'thunderbird' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
thunderbird on CentOS 5

Technical Details:
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed HTML mail content. An HTML mail message containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1303, CVE-2009-1305, CVE-2009-1833, CVE-2009-1838) Several flaws were found in the way malformed HTML mail content was processed. An HTML mail message containing malicious content could execute arbitrary JavaScript in the context of the mail message, possibly presenting misleading data to the user, or stealing sensitive information such as login credentials. (CVE-2009-1306, CVE-2009-1307, CVE-2009-1308, CVE-2009-1309) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled error responses returned from proxy servers. If an attacker is able to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack against a Thunderbird instance that is using a proxy server, they may be able to steal sensitive information from the site Thunderbird is displaying. (CVE-2009-1836) Note: JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird. None of the above issues are exploitable unless JavaScript is enabled. All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated Linux Distribution Package, which resolves these issues. All running instances of Thunderbird must be restarted for the update to take effect.

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Vulnerability management is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities are evaluated. This evaluation leads to correcting the vulnerabilities and removing the risk or a formal risk acceptance by the management of an organization. The term vulnerability management is often confused with vulnerability scanning. Despite the fact both are related, there is an important difference between the two. Vulnerability scanning consists of using a computer program to identify vulnerabilities in networks, computer infrastructure or applications. Vulnerability management is the process surrounding vulnerability scanning, also taking into account other aspects such as risk acceptance, remediation etc. Source: "Implementing a Vulnerability Management Process".
