Description

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of some malformed HTML mail content. An HTML mail message containing such malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2008-1233, CVE-2008-1235, CVE-2008-1236, CVE-2008-1237) Several flaws were found in the display of malformed web content. An HTML mail message containing specially crafted content could, potentially, trick a user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-1234) A flaw was found in the processing of malformed JavaScript content. An HTML mail message containing such malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2008-1380) Note: JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird; the above issue is not exploitable unless JavaScript is enabled. All Thunderbird users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve 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.
