--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : thunderbird
Product     : Fedora 7
Version     : 2.0.0.14
Release     : 1.fc7
URL         : http://www.mozilla.org/projects/thunderbird/
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 processing of some malformed HTML mail  content. An HTML mail
message containing such malicious content could cause  Thunderbird to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user  running Thunderbird.
(CVE-2008-1233, CVE-2008-1235, CVE-2008-1236,  CVE-2008-1237)    Several flaws
were found in the display of malformed web content. An HTML  mail message
containing specially-crafted content could, potentially, trick  a user into
surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-1234)    A flaw was found in the
processing of malformed JavaScript content. An HTML  mail message containing
such malicious content could cause Thunderbird to  crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code as the user running  Thunderbird. (CVE-2008-1380)
Note: JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird; the above  issue
is not exploitable unless JavaScript is enabled.    All Thunderbird users should
upgrade to these updated packages, which  contain backported patches to resolve
these issues.
