Mozilla Thunderbird Security Updates(mfsa_2017-05_2017-07)-MAC OS X

Published: 2017-03-08 05:56:44
CVE Author: NIST National Vulnerability Database

CVSS Base Vector:

This host is installed with Mozilla Thunderbird and is prone to multiple vulnerabilities.

Detection Method:
Checks if a vulnerable version is present on the target host.

Technical Details:
The multiple flaws exist due to, - asm.js JIT-spray bypass of ASLR and DEP. - Memory Corruption when handling ErrorResult. - Use-after-free working with events in FontFace objects. - Use-after-free using addRange to add range to an incorrect root object. - Use-after-free working with ranges in selections. - Segmentation fault in Skia with canvas operations. - Pixel and history stealing via floating-point timing side channel with SVG filters. - Memory corruption during JavaScript garbage collection incremental sweeping. - Use-after-free in Buffer Storage in libGLES. - File deletion via callback parameter in Mozilla Windows Updater and Maintenance Service. - Cross-origin reading of video captions in violation of CORS. - Buffer overflow read in SVG filters. - Segmentation fault during bidirectional operations. - File picker can choose incorrect default directory. - Addressbar spoofing through blob URL. - Null dereference crash in HttpChannel. - Addressbar spoofing by dragging and dropping URLs. - Overly permissive Gecko Media Plugin sandbox regular expression access. - Gecko Media Plugin sandbox is not started if seccomp-bpf filter is running. - Non-existent chrome.manifest file loaded during startup. - Out of bounds read when parsing HTTP digest authorization responses. - Repeated authentication prompts lead to DOS attack. - Javascript: URLs can obfuscate addressbar location. - FTP response codes can cause use of uninitialized values for ports. - Print preview spoofing. - DOS attack by using view-source: protocol repeatedly in one hyperlink.

Successful exploitation will allow attackers to execute arbitrary code, to delete arbitrary files by leveraging certain local file execution, to obtain sensitive information, and to cause a denial of service.

Affected Versions:
Mozilla Thunderbird version before 45.8 on MAC OS X.

Upgrade to Mozilla Thunderbird 45.8 or later.

Solution Type:
Vendor Patch

Detection Type:

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".
