Description

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processes certain malformed JavaScript code. A malicious HTML mail message could cause the execution of JavaScript code in such a way that could cause Thunderbird to crash or execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2006-5463, CVE-2006-5747, CVE-2006-5748)

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird renders HTML mail messages. A malicious HTML mail message could cause the mail client to crash or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2006-5464)

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this update, which contains Thunderbird version 1.5.0.8 that corrects these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
