Mandriva Linux Security Advisory MDKSA-2006:078
http://www.mandriva.com/security/
_______________________________________________________________________

Package : mozilla-thunderbird
Date : April 25, 2006
Affected: 2006.0
_______________________________________________________________________

Problem Description:

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Mozilla
Thunderbird email client that could allow a remote attacker to craft
malicious web emails that could take advantage of these issues to
execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges, spoof content, and
steal local files, or other information. As well, some of these
vulnerabilities can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the program.

As well, two crasher bugs have been fixed as well.

The updated packages have been patched to fix these problems.
