Details

Updated thunderbird packages that fix a security issue are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and 5.

This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red
Hat Security Response Team.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

A flaw was found in the processing of malformed JavaScript content. An HTML
mail message containing such malicious content could cause Thunderbird to
crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running
Thunderbird. (CVE-2008-1380)

Note: JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird; the above
issue is not exploitable unless JavaScript is enabled.

All Thunderbird users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
contain backported patches to resolve these issues.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure that all previously-released
errata relevant to your system have been applied.
