<p>
The Mozilla Thunderbird mail client is a redesign of the Mozilla Mail
component. The goal is to produce a cross-platform stand-alone mail
application using XUL (XML User Interface Language).

<description>
<p>
The following vulnerabilities have been reported:
</p>
<ul>
<li>Benjamin Smedberg discovered that chrome URLss could be made to
reference remote files.</li>
<li>Developers in the Mozilla community
looked for and fixed several crash bugs to improve the stability of
Mozilla clients.</li>
<li>"shutdown" reports that cross-site scripting
(XSS) attacks could be performed using the construct
XPCNativeWrapper(window).Function(...), which created a function that
appeared to belong to the window in question even after it had been
navigated to the target site.</li>
<li>"shutdown" reports that scripts
granting the UniversalBrowserRead privilege can leverage that into the
equivalent of the far more powerful UniversalXPConnect since they are
allowed to "read" into a privileged context.</li>
<li>"moz_bug_r_a4"
discovered that Named JavaScript functions have a parent object created
using the standard Object() constructor (ECMA-specified behavior) and
that this constructor can be redefined by script (also ECMA-specified
behavior).</li>
<li>Igor Bukanov and shutdown found additional places
where an untimely garbage collection could delete a temporary object
that was in active use.</li>
<li>Georgi Guninski found potential
integer overflow issues with long strings in the toSource() methods of
the Object, Array and String objects as well as string function
arguments.</li>
<li>H. D. Moore reported a testcase that was able to
trigger a race condition where JavaScript garbage collection deleted a
temporary variable still being used in the creation of a new Function
object.</li>
<li>A malicious page can hijack native DOM methods on a
document object in another domain, which will run the attacker's script
when called by the victim page.</li>
<li>Secunia Research has
discovered a vulnerability which is caused due to an memory corruption
error within the handling of simultaneously happening XPCOM events.
This leads to use of a deleted timer object.</li>
</ul>
</description>
<impact type="normal">
<p>
A user can be enticed to open specially crafted URLs, visit webpages
containing malicious JavaScript or execute a specially crafted script.
These events could lead to the execution of arbitrary code, or the
installation of malware on the user's computer.
</p>
</impact>
<workaround>
<p>
There is no known workaround at this time.
</p>
</workaround>
<resolution>
<p>
All Mozilla Thunderbird users should upgrade to the latest version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-1.5.0.5&quot;</code>
<p>
All Mozilla Thunderbird binary users should upgrade to the latest
version:
</p>
<code>
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose &quot;&gt;=mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-bin-1.5.0.5&quot;</code>
</resolution>
