Subject: Security ERRATA Important: thunderbird on SL5.x, SL6.x i386/x86_64
Newsgroups: gmane.linux.scientific.errata
Date: Wednesday 30th October 2013 17:31:59 UTC (over 3 years ago)
Synopsis:          Important: thunderbird security update
Advisory ID:       SLSA-2013:1480-1
Issue Date:        2013-10-30

--

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-2013-5590, CVE-2013-5597, CVE-2013-5599, CVE-2013-5600,
CVE-2013-5601, CVE-2013-5602)

It was found that the Thunderbird JavaScript engine incorrectly allocated
memory for certain functions. An attacker could combine this flaw with
other vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-5595)

A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled certain Extensible
Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) files. An attacker could
combine this flaw with other vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code
with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-5604)

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.
