Mandriva Update for mozilla-thunderbird MDVSA-2011:140 (mozilla-thunderbird)

Published: 2011-10-04 14:55:13
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 'mozilla-thunderbird' Linux Distribution Package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Affected Versions:
mozilla-thunderbird on Mandriva Linux 2009.0, Mandriva Linux 2009.0/X86_64, Mandriva Linux 2010.1, Mandriva Linux 2010.1/X86_64

Technical Details:
Security issues were identified and fixed in mozilla firefox and thunderbird: Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 do not prevent the starting of a download in response to the holding of the Enter key, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted web site (CVE-2011-2372). Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine in Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2011-2995). Unspecified vulnerability in the plugin API in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via unknown vectors (CVE-2011-2996). Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 5, Thunderbird before 6.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.3 do not properly handle location as the name of a frame, which allows remote attackers to bypass the Same Origin Policy via a crafted web site, a different vulnerability than CVE-2010-0170 (CVE-2011-2999). Mozilla Firefox before 3.6.23 and 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 do not properly handle HTTP responses that contain multiple Location, Content-Length, or Content-Disposition headers, which makes it easier for remote attackers to conduct HTTP response splitting attacks via crafted header values (CVE-2011-3000). Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 do not prevent manual add-on installation in response to the holding of the Enter key, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted web site that triggers an unspecified internal error (CVE-2011-3001). Integer underflow in Mozilla Firefox 3.6.x before 3.6.23 allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via JavaScript code containing a large RegExp expression (CVE-2011-3867). Packages for 2009.0 are provided as of the Extended Maintenance Program. Additionally, some Linux Distribution Packages which require so, have been rebuilt and are being provided as updates.

Recommendations:
Please Install the Updated 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".
