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

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : thunderbird
Version : 1.0.6
Release : 1.1.fc3
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.

A bug was found in the way Thunderbird handled anonymous functions during regular expression string replacement. It is possible for a malicious HTML mail to capture a random block of client memory. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project has assigned this bug the name CAN-2005-0989.

A bug was found in the way Thunderbird validated several XPInstall related JavaScript objects. A malicious HTML mail could pass other objects to the XPInstall objects, resulting in the JavaScript interpreter jumping to arbitrary locations in memory. (CAN-2005-1159)

A bug was found in the way the Thunderbird privileged UI code handled DOM nodes from the content window. An HTML message could install malicious JavaScript code or steal data when a user performs commonplace actions such as clicking a link or opening the context menu. (CAN-2005-1160)

A bug was found in the way Thunderbird executed JavaScript code. JavaScript executed from HTML mail should run with a restricted access level, preventing dangerous actions. It is possible that a malicious HTML mail could execute JavaScript code with elevated privileges, allowing access to protected data and functions. (CAN-2005-1532)

A bug was found in the way Thunderbird executed Javascript in XBL controls. It is possible for a malicious HTML mail to leverage this vulnerability to execute other JavaScript based attacks even when JavaScript is disabled. (CAN-2005-2261)

A bug was found in the way Thunderbird handled certain Javascript functions. It is possible for a malicious HTML mail to crash the client by executing malformed Javascript code. (CAN-2005-2265)

A bug was found in the way Thunderbird handled child frames. It is possible for a malicious framed HTML mail to steal sensitive information from its parent frame. (CAN-2005-2266)

A bug was found in the way Thunderbird handled DOM node names. It is possible for a malicious HTML mail to overwrite a DOM node name, allowing certain privileged chrome actions to execute the malicious JavaScript. (CAN-2005-2269)

A bug was found in the way Thunderbird cloned base objects. It is possible for HTML content to navigate up the prototype chain to gain access to privileged chrome objects. (CAN-2005-2270)

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this updated package that contains Thunderbird version 1.0.6 and is not vulnerable to these issues.
