Test ID:1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.72482
Category:Red Hat Local Security Checks
Title:RedHat Security Advisory RHSA-2012:1362
Summary:NOSUMMARY
Description:Description:
The remote host is missing updates announced in
advisory RHSA-2012:1362.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled security wrappers.
Malicious content could cause Thunderbird to execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-4193)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting this issue.
Upstream acknowledges moz_bug_r_a4 as the original reporter.

Note: This issue cannot be exploited by a specially-crafted HTML mail
message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. It could be
exploited another way in Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full
remote content of an RSS feed.

All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which
corrects this issue. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.

Solution:
Please note that this update is available via
Red Hat Network. To use Red Hat Network, launch the Red
Hat Update Agent with the following command: up2date
