#CVE-2020-26970: Stack overflow due to incorrect parsing of SMTP server response codes

Reporter
    Chiaki Ishikawa
Impact
    high

Description

When reading SMTP server status codes, Thunderbird writes an integer value to a position on the stack that is intended to contain just one byte. Depending on processor architecture and stack layout, this leads to stack corruption that may be exploitable.

        Thunderbird 78.6

In general, these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird product because scripting is disabled when reading mail, but are potentially risks in browser or browser-like contexts.

Reporter
    André Bargull
Impact

#CVE-2020-26974: Incorrect cast of StyleGenericFlexBasis resulted in a heap use-after-free

Reporter
    Pham Bao of VinCSS (Member of Vingroup)
Impact
    high

Description

When flex-basis was used on a table wrapper, a StyleGenericFlexBasis object could have been incorrectly cast to the wrong type. This resulted in a heap user-after-free, memory corruption, and a potentially exploitable crash.

#CVE-2020-26978: Internal network hosts could have been probed by a malicious webpage

Reporter
    Samy Kamkar, Ben Seri, and Gregory Vishnepolsky
Impact
    moderate

Description

Using techniques that built on the slipstream research, a malicious webpage could have exposed both an internal network's hosts as well as services running on the user's local machine.

#CVE-2020-35111: The proxy.onRequest API did not catch view-source URLs

Reporter
    Yassine Tioual
Impact
    low

Description

When an extension with the proxy permission registered to receive <all_urls>, the proxy.onRequest callback was not triggered for view-source URLs. While web content cannot navigate to such URLs, a user opening View Source could have inadvertently leaked their IP address.

#CVE-2020-35112: Opening an extension-less download may have inadvertently launched an executable instead

Reporter
    Samuel Attard via the Chrome Security Team
Impact
    low

Description

If a user downloaded a file lacking an extension on Windows, and then "Open"-ed it from the downloads panel, if there was an executable file in the downloads directory with the same name but with an executable extension (such as .bat or .exe) that executable would have been launched instead.
Note: This issue only affected Windows operating systems. Other operating systems are unaffected.

#CVE-2020-35113: Memory safety bugs fixed in Thunderbird 78.6

Reporter
    Christian Holler
Impact
    high

Description

Mozilla developer Christian Holler reported memory safety bugs present in Thunderbird 78.5. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run arbitrary code.
