Summary:The remote host is missing an update for the 'thunderbird'; package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.
Description:Summary:
The remote host is missing an update for the 'thunderbird'
package(s) announced via the referenced advisory.

Vulnerability Insight:
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

A flaw was found in the processing of malformed content. An HTML mail
message containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-0442)

A malicious script could possibly use this flaw to gain access to sensitive
information (such as a client's IP and user e-mail address, or httpOnly cookies)
that may be included in HTTP proxy error replies, generated in response to
invalid URLs using square brackets. (CVE-2011-3670)

Note: The CVE-2011-3670 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
resolves these issues. All running instances of Thunderbird must be
restarted for the update to take effect.

Affected Software/OS:
thunderbird on Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4,
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4,
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4

Solution:
Please Install the Updated Packages.
