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

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.
