Description

Mozilla Thunderbird before 2.0.0.24 and SeaMonkey before 1.1.19 process e-mail attachments with a parser that performs casts and line termination incorrectly, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code via a crafted message, related to message indexing.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
