Description

CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2016:1392

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

This update upgrades Thunderbird to version 45.2.0.

Security Fix(es):

  • Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2016-2818)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Christian Holler, Gary Kwong, Jesse Ruderman, Tyson Smith, Timothy Nikkel, Sylvestre Ledru, Julian Seward, Olli Pettay, and Karl Tomlinson as the original reporters.
