Description

Jeff Gilbert and Henrik Skupin discovered multiple memory safety issues in Thunderbird. If the user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted message with scripting enabled, an attacker could possibly exploit these to cause a denial of service via application crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-1701)

It was discovered that a document's URI could be set to the URI of a different document. If a user had scripting enabled, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2013-1709)

A flaw was discovered when generating a CRMF request in certain circumstances. If a user had scripting enabled, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-1710)

Cody Crews discovered that some JavaScript components performed security checks against the wrong URI, potentially bypassing same-origin policy restrictions. If a user had scripting enabled, an attacker could exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks or install addons from a malicious site. (CVE-2013-1713)

Federico Lanusse discovered that web workers could bypass cross-origin checks when using XMLHttpRequest. If a user had scripting enabled, an attacker could potentially exploit this to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks. (CVE-2013-1714)

Georgi Guninski and John Schoenick discovered that Java applets could access local files under certain circumstances. If a user had scripting enabled, an attacker could potentially exploit this to steal confidential data. (CVE-2013-1717).

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