Description

Updated Mozilla Thunderbird packages fix various vulnerabilities :

The run-mozilla.sh script, with debugging enabled, would allow local users to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on temporary files (CVE-2005-2353).

A bug in the way Thunderbird processes XBM images could be used to execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted XBM image file (CVE-2005-2701).

A bug in the way Thunderbird handles certain Unicode sequences could be used to execute arbitrary code via viewing a specially crafted Unicode sequence (CVE-2005-2702).

A bug in the way Thunderbird makes XMLHttp requests could be abused by a malicious web page to exploit other proxy or server flaws from the victim's machine; however, the default behaviour of the browser is to disallow this (CVE-2005-2703).

A bug in the way Thunderbird implemented its XBL interface could be abused by a malicious web page to create an XBL binding in such a way as to allow arbitrary JavaScript execution with chrome permissions (CVE-2005-2704).

An integer overflow in Thunderbird's JavaScript engine could be manipulated in certain conditions to allow a malicious web page to execute arbitrary code (CVE-2005-2705).

A bug in the way Thunderbird displays about: pages could be used to execute JavaScript with chrome privileges (CVE-2005-2706).

A bug in the way Thunderbird opens new windows could be used by a malicious web page to construct a new window without any user interface elements (such as address bar and status bar) that could be used to potentially mislead the user (CVE-2005-2707).

A bug in the way Thunderbird proceesed URLs on the command line could be used to execute arbitary commands as the user running Thunderbird; this could be abused by clicking on a supplied link, such as from an instant messaging client (CVE-2005-2968).

Tom Ferris reported that Thunderbird would crash when processing a domain name consisting solely of soft-hyphen characters due to a heap overflow when IDN processing results in an empty string after removing non-wrapping chracters, such as soft-hyphens. This could be exploited to run or or install malware on the user's computer (CVE-2005-2871).

The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
