Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: Mozilla Thunderbird: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200711-24)
Severity: normal
Exploitable: remote
Date: November 18, 2007
Bug(s): #196481
ID: 200711-24

Synopsis


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Thunderbird, which
may allow user-assisted arbitrary remote code execution.


Background


Mozilla Thunderbird is a popular open-source email client from the
Mozilla project.


Affected Packages

Package: mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird
Vulnerable: < 2.0.0.9
Unaffected: >= 2.0.0.9
Architectures: All supported architectures

Package: mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-bin
Vulnerable: < 2.0.0.9
Unaffected: >= 2.0.0.9
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description


Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Thunderbird's
HTML browser engine (CVE-2007-5339) and JavaScript engine
(CVE-2007-5340) that can be exploited to cause a memory corruption.


Impact


A remote attacker could entice a user to read a specially crafted email
that could trigger one of the vulnerabilities, possibly leading to the
execution of arbitrary code.


Workaround


There is no known workaround at this time for all of these issues, but
some of them can be avoided by disabling JavaScript.


Resolution


All Mozilla Thunderbird users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-2.0.0.9"

All Mozilla Thunderbird binary users should upgrade to the latest
version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
    # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-bin-2.0.0.9"
