Description

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in Icedove, Debian's version of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail and news client.

CVE-2012-4201The evalInSandbox implementation uses an incorrect context during the handling of JavaScript code that sets the location.href property, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks or read arbitrary files by leveraging a sandboxed add-on.

CVE-2012-4207The HZ-GB-2312 character-set implementation does not properly handle a ~ (tilde) character in proximity to a chunk delimiter, which allows remote attackers to conduct cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks via a crafted document.

CVE-2012-4216Use-after-free vulnerability in the gfxFont::GetFontEntry function allows remote attackers to execute arbitrary code or cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) via unspecified vectors.

CVE-2012-5829Heap-based buffer overflow in the nsWindow::OnExposeEvent function could allow remote attackers to execute arbitrary code.

CVE-2012-5842Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine could allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service (memory corruption and application crash) or possibly execute arbitrary code.
