Fedora Update Notification

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.
