CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

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

severity_vector=CVSS:3.0/AV:N/AC:L/PR:N/UI:N/S:U/C:H/I:H/A:H

severity_date=2018-08-01 12:05:00 +0000 (Wed, 01 Aug 2018)

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:
Linux Distribution Package

Affected Versions:
icedove on Debian Linux

Recommendations:
For the stable distribution (jessie), these problems have been fixed in version 1:45.8.0-3~deb8u1. We recommend that you upgrade your icedove Linux Distribution Packages.

Summary:
Multiple security issues have been found in Thunderbird, which may may lead to the execution of arbitrary code or information leaks. With this update, the Icedove Linux Distribution Packages are de-branded back to the official Mozilla branding. With the removing of the Debian branding the Linux Distribution Packages are also renamed back to the official names used by Mozilla. The Thunderbird Linux Distribution Package is using a different default profile folder, the default profile folder is now '$(HOME)/.thunderbird' . The users profile folder, that was used in Icedove, will get migrated to the new profile folder on the first start, that can take a little bit more time. Please read README.Debian for getting more information about the changes.

Detection Method:
This check tests the installed software version using the apt Linux Distribution Package manager.

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".
