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-2015-4500, CVE-2015-4509, CVE-2015-4517, CVE-2015-4521, CVE-2015-4522, CVE-2015-7174, CVE-2015-7175, CVE-2015-7176, CVE-2015-7177, CVE-2015-7180)

Two information leak flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to disclose sensitive information or, in certain cases, crash. (CVE-2015-4519, CVE-2015-4520)

Note: All of the above issues cannot be exploited by a specially crafted HTML mail message because JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. However, they could be exploited in other ways in Thunderbird (for example, by viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed).

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