Date:  Sep 8 2010
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of system information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): 3.0 prior to 3.0.7, 3.1 prior to 3.1.3
Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Thunderbird. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML-based e-mail that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2010-2760, CVE-2010-2762, CVE-2010-2763, CVE-2010-2765, CVE-2010-2766, CVE-2010-2767, CVE-2010-2770, CVE-2010-3166, CVE-2010-3167, CVE-2010-3168, and CVE-2010-3169]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser in the security context of an arbitrary site [CVE-2010-2768, CVE-2010-2769]. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A remote user can from an arbitrary domain can access the statusText property of an XMLHttpRequest object within another domain [CVE-2010-2764]. This can be exploited to gather information about servers on internal private networks.

Peter Van der Beken, Jason Oster, Jesse Ruderman, Igor Bukanov, Jeff Walden, Gary Kwong, Olli Pettay, Michal Zalewski, Chris Rohlf of Matasano Security, Sergey Glazunov, wushi of team509, regenrecht via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, Marc Schoenefeld, Blake Kaplan, David Huang and Collin Jackson of Carnegie Mellon University CyLab (Silicon Valley campus), Paul Stone, and Matt Haggard reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can create a HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the target site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (3.0.7, 3.1.3).
