Vulnerability Assessment Details

[DSA1159] DSA-1159-2 mozilla-thunderbird

Vulnerability Assessment Summary
DSA-1159-2 mozilla-thunderbird

Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment

The latest security updates of Mozilla Thunderbird introduced a
regression that led to a disfunctional attachment panel which warrants
a correction to fix this issue. For reference please find below the
original advisory text:
Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and
derived products such as Mozilla Thunderbird. The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
vulnerabilities:
Mozilla team members discovered several crashes during testing of
the browser engine showing evidence of memory corruption which may
also lead to the execution of arbitrary code. The last bit of
this problem will be corrected with the next update. You can
prevent any trouble by disabling Javascript. [MFSA-2006-32]
The Javascript engine might permit remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-50]
Multiple integer overflows in the Javascript engine might permit
remote attackers to execute arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-50]
Specially crafted Javascript permits remote attackers to execute
arbitrary code. [MFSA-2006-51]
Remote Proxy AutoConfig (PAC) servers could execute code with elevated
rights via a specially crafted PAC script. [MFSA-2006-52]
Scripts with the UniversalBrowserRead privilege could gain
UniversalXPConnect rights and possibly execute code or obtain
sensitive data. [MFSA-2006-53]
A cross-site scripting vulnerability permits remote attackers to
inject arbitrary web script or HTML. [MFSA-2006-54]
For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.2-2.sarge1.0.8b.2.
For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5.0.5-1.
We recommend that you upgrade your mozilla-thunderbird package.
