CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:
AV:N/AC:L/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. A memory corruption flaw was found in the way Thunderbird decoded certain PNG images. An attacker could create a mail message containing a specially-crafted PNG image that, when opened, could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2010-1205) 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 with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2010-0174, CVE-2010-1200, CVE-2010-1211, CVE-2010-1214, CVE-2010-2753) An integer overflow flaw was 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 with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2010-1199) Several use-after-free flaws were found in Thunderbird. Viewing an HTML mail message containing malicious content could result in Thunderbird executing arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2010-0175, CVE-2010-0176, CVE-2010-0177) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird plug-ins interact. It was possible for a plug-in to reference the freed memory from a different plug-in, resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2010-1198) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled the 'Content-Disposition: attachment' HTTP header when the 'Content-Type: multipart' HTTP header was also present. Loading remote HTTP content that allows arbitrary uploads and relies on the 'Content-Disposition: attachment' HTTP header to prevent content from being displayed inline, could be used by an attacker to serve malicious content to users. (CVE-2010-1197) A same-origin policy bypass flaw was found in Thunderbird. Remote HTML content could steal private data from different remote HTML content Thunderbird has loaded. (CVE-2010-2754) 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.

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".
