Insight

Insight

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processed certain malformed HTML mail content. A HTML mail message containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2008-0412, CVE-2008-0413, CVE-2008-0415, CVE-2008-0419) Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird displayed malformed HTML mail content. A HTML mail message containing specially-crafted content could trick a user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-0591, CVE-2008-0593) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handles certain chrome URLs. If a user has certain extensions installed, it could allow a malicious HTML mail message to steal sensitive session data. Note: this flaw does not affect a default installation of Thunderbird. (CVE-2008-0418) Note: JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird the above issues are not exploitable unless JavaScript is enabled. A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird saves certain text files. If a remote site offers a file of type &quot plain/text&quot , rather than &quot text/plain&quot , Thunderbird will not show future &quot text/plain&quot content to the user, forcing them to save those files locally to view the content. (CVE-2008-0592) Users of thunderbird are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
