Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata

Synopsis:          Important: thunderbird security update
Advisory ID:       SLSA-2013:1269-1
Issue Date:        2013-09-17
CVE Numbers:       CVE-2013-1718

                   CVE-2013-1722
--

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-2013-1718, CVE-2013-1722, CVE-2013-1725, CVE-2013-1730,
CVE-2013-1732, CVE-2013-1735, CVE-2013-1736)

A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled certain DOM JavaScript
objects. An attacker could use this flaw to make JavaScript client or add-
on code make incorrect, security sensitive decisions. (CVE-2013-1737)

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.

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