--

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed content. Malicious
content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary
code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-0744,
CVE-2013-0746, CVE-2013-0750, CVE-2013-0753, CVE-2013-0754, CVE-2013-0762,
CVE-2013-0766, CVE-2013-0767, CVE-2013-0769)

A flaw was found in the way Chrome Object Wrappers were implemented. 
Malicious
content could be used to cause Thunderbird to execute arbitrary code via 
plug-
ins installed in Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-0758)

A flaw in the way Thunderbird displayed URL values could allow malicious
content or a user to perform a phishing attack. (CVE-2013-0759)

An information disclosure flaw was found in the way certain JavaScript
functions were implemented in Thunderbird. An attacker could use this 
flaw to
bypass Address Space Layout Randomization (ASLR) and other security
restrictions. (CVE-2013-0748)

Note: All issues except CVE-2013-0744, CVE-2013-0753, and CVE-2013-0754 
cannot
be exploited by a specially-crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is 
disabled
by default for mail messages. They could be exploited another way in
Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS 
feed.

After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes
to take effect.
