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 6

Recommendations:
Please install the updated Linux Distribution Packages.

Technical Details:
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed content. Malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2011-3101, CVE-2012-1937, CVE-2012-1938, CVE-2012-1939, CVE-2012-1940, CVE-2012-1941, CVE-2012-1946, CVE-2012-1947) Note: CVE-2011-3101 only affected users of certain NVIDIA display drivers with graphics cards that have hardware acceleration enabled. It was found that the Content Security Policy (CSP) implementation in Thunderbird no longer blocked Thunderbird inline event handlers. Malicious content could possibly bypass intended restrictions if that content relied on CSP to protect against flaws such as cross-site scripting (XSS). (CVE-2012-1944) If a web server hosted content that is stored on a Microsoft Windows share, or a Samba share, loading such content with Thunderbird could result in Windows shortcut files (.lnk) in the same share also being loaded. An attacker could use this flaw to view the contents of local files and directories on the victim's system. This issue also affected users opening content from Microsoft Windows shares, or Samba shares, that are mounted on their systems. (CVE-2012-1945) Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Ken Russell of Google as the original reporter of CVE-2011-3101, Igor Bukanov, Olli Pettay, Boris Zbarsky, and Jesse Ruderman as the original reporters of CVE-2012-1937, Jesse Ruderman, Igor Bukanov, Bill McCloskey, Christian Holler, Andrew McCreight, and Brian Bondy as the original reporters of CVE-2012-1938, Christian Holler as the original reporter of CVE-2012-1939, security researcher Abhishek Arya of Google as the original reporter of CVE-2012-1940, CVE-2012-1941, and CVE-2012-1947, security researcher Arthur Gerkis as the original reporter of CVE-2012-1946, security researcher Adam Barth as the original reporter of CVE-2012-1944, and security researcher Paul Stone as the original reporter of CVE-2012-1945. Note: None of the issues in this advisory can be exploited by a specially-crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. They could be exploited another way in Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed. All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated Linux Distribution Package, which contains Thunderbird version 10.0.5 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

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".
