Description

Several 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-2015-0836, CVE-2015-0831, CVE-2015-0827)

An information leak flaw was found in the way Thunderbird implemented autocomplete forms. An attacker able to trick a user into specifying a local file in the form could use this flaw to access the contents of that file. (CVE-2015-0822)

Note: All of the above issues cannot be exploited by a specially crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. They could be exploited another way in Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed.

After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
