CVE Reference:   CVE-2014-1520, CVE-2014-1523, CVE-2014-1524, CVE-2014-1529, CVE-2014-1530, CVE-2014-1531, CVE-2014-1532   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Apr 30 2014
Impact:   Denial of service via network, Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via local system, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information, User access via local system, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 24.5.0
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 cause denial of service conditions. A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A local user can gain elevated privileges.

On Windows-based systems, a local user can place a DLL file within a temporary directory used by the Mozilla Maintenance Service to cause the service to execute code with the privileges of the target user [CVE-2014-1520].

A remote user can send a specially crafted JPEG image to cause the target user's mail application to crash [CVE-2014-1523].

A buffer overflow may occur in nsXBLProtoImpl::InstallImplementation(), leading to code execution [CVE-2014-1524].

A remote authenticated web site with notification permissions can exploit a flaw in the Web Notification API to execute arbitrary code on the target user's browser [CVE-2014-1529].

A remote user can exploit a flaw in docshell to set the address bar to a different URL to conduct cross-site scripting attacks [CVE-2014-1530].

A use-after-free may occur in nsGenericHTMLElement::GetWidthHeightForImage(), leading to code execution [CVE-2014-1531].

A use-after-free may occur in libxul.so!nsHostResolver::ConditionallyRefreshRecord(), leading to code execution [CVE-2014-1532].

Ash, Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team, Mariusz Mlynski, moz_bug_r_a4, Nils, and Tyson Smith and Jesse Schwartzentruber of the BlackBerry Security Automated Analysis Team reported these vulnerabilities.

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

A remote user can cause the target user's mail application to crash.

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 local user can gain elevated privileges.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (24.5.0).
