1. Summary:

An updated thunderbird package that fixes one security issue is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x,

3. Description:

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled
certain multibyte character sets. Malicious, remote content could cause
Thunderbird to run JavaScript code with the permissions of different remote
content. (CVE-2011-3648)

Note: This issue cannot be exploited by a specially-crafted HTML mail
message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. It could be
exploited another way in Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full
remote content of an RSS feed.

All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which
resolves this issue. All running instances of Thunderbird must be restarted
for the update to take effect.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

751932 - CVE-2011-3648 Mozilla: Universal XSS likely with MultiByte charset
(MFSA 2011-47)
