Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.
Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web
page containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
Thunderbird. (CVE-2014-1493, CVE-2014-1510, CVE-2014-1511, CVE-2014-1512,
Several information disclosure flaws were found in the way Thunderbird
processed malformed web content. An attacker could use these flaws to gain
access to sensitive information such as cross-domain content or protected
memory addresses or, potentially, cause Thunderbird to crash.
(CVE-2014-1497, CVE-2014-1508, CVE-2014-1505)
A memory corruption flaw was found in the way Thunderbird rendered certain
PDF files. An attacker able to trick a user into installing a malicious
extension could use this flaw to crash Thunderbird or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird.
Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues.
