---------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2006-1491
2006-12-20
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product     : Fedora Core 6
Name        : thunderbird
Version     : 1.5.0.9
Release     : 2.fc6
Summary     : Mozilla Thunderbird mail/newsgroup client
Description :
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

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

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processes
certain malformed JavaScript code. A malicious web page
could cause the execution of JavaScript code in such a way
that could cause Thunderbird to crash or execute arbitrary
code as the user running Thunderbird. JavaScript support is
disabled by default in Thunderbird; this issue is not
exploitable without enabling JavaScript. (CVE-2006-6498,
CVE-2006-6501, CVE-2006-6502, CVE-2006-6503, CVE-2006-6504)

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird renders web
pages. A malicious web page could cause the browser to crash
or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running
Thunderbird. (CVE-2006-6497)

A heap based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way
Thunderbird parses the Content-Type mail header. A malicious
mail message could cause the Thunderbird client to crash or
possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running
Thunderbird. (CVE-2006-6505)

Users of Thunderbird are advised to apply this update, which
contains Thunderbird version 1.5.0.9 that corrects these issues.
