A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2011-2982]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

Gary Kwong, Igor Bukanov, Nils, and Bob Clary reported these vulnerabilities.

A remote user can trigger a dangling pointer flaw in SVGTextElement.getCharNumAtPosition() [CVE-2011-0084].

regenrecht reported this vulnerability (via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative).

The appendChild() function does not properly manage DOM objects and can trigger an invalid pointer dereference [CVE-2011-2378].

regenrecht reported this vulnerability (via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative).

When RegExp.input is set, a remote user can read data from other domains [CVE-2011-2983].

1. Summary:

An updated thunderbird package that fixes several security issues is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

3. Description:

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed HTML content.
Malicious HTML content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird.
(CVE-2011-2982)

A dangling pointer flaw was found in the Thunderbird Scalable Vector
Graphics (SVG) text manipulation routine. An HTML mail message containing a
malicious SVG image could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird.
(CVE-2011-0084)

A dangling pointer flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled a certain
Document Object Model (DOM) element. 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-2011-2378)

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.
