--

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-2013-1682, CVE-2013-1684, CVE-2013-1685, CVE-2013-1686,
CVE-2013-1687, CVE-2013-1690)

It was found that Thunderbird allowed data to be sent in the body of
XMLHttpRequest (XHR) HEAD requests. In some cases this could allow
attackers to conduct Cross-Site Request Forgery (CSRF) attacks.
(CVE-2013-1692)

Timing differences in the way Thunderbird processed SVG image files could
allow an attacker to read data across domains, potentially leading to
information disclosure. (CVE-2013-1693)

Two flaws were found in the way Thunderbird implemented some of its
internal structures (called wrappers). An attacker could use these flaws
to bypass some restrictions placed on them. This could lead to unexpected
behavior or a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2013-1694,
CVE-2013-1697)

Note: All of the above issues 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.

0.7 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update,
Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
