---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-247
2005-03-23
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 3
Name        : thunderbird
Version     : 1.0.2
Release     : 1.3.1
Summary     : Mozilla Thunderbird mail/newsgroup client
Description :
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:


A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Thunderbird processes GIF images. It is possible for an attacker to create a specially crafted GIF image, which when viewed by a victim will execute arbitrary code as the victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0399 to this issue.


A bug was found in the Thunderbird string handling functions. If a malicious website is able to exhaust a system's memory, it becomes possible to execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0255 to this issue.

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this updated package which contains Thunderbird version 1.0.2 and is not vulnerable to these issues.

This update enables pango rendering by default.
