Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment


Updated thunderbird packages that fix various bugs are now available.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Thunderbird processes GIF
images. It is possible for a possible hacker to create a specially crafted GIF
image, which when viewed by a victim will execute arbitrary code as the
victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CVE-2005-0399 to this issue.

A bug was found in the Thunderbird string handling functions. If a
malicious website is able to exhaust a system's memory, it becomes possible
to execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project
(cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CVE-2005-0255 to this issue.

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this updated package which
contains Thunderbird version 1.0.2 and is not vulnerable to these issues.
