Synopsis: Moderate: thunderbird security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2007:1083-01 Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2007-1083.html Issue date: 2007-12-19 Updated on: 2007-12-19 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux CVE Names: CVE-2007-5947 CVE-2007-5959 CVE-2007-5960 - ---------------------------------------------------------------------
  1. Summary:

Updated thunderbird packages that fix several security issues 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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64 RHEL Optional Productivity Applications (v. 5 server) - i386, x86_64

3. Problem description:

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

A cross-site scripting flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled the jar: URI scheme. It may be possible for a malicious HTML mail message to leverage this flaw, and conduct a cross-site scripting attack against a user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2007-5947)

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processed certain malformed HTML mail content. A HTML mail message containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2007-5959)

A race condition existed when Thunderbird set the "window.location" property when displaying HTML mail content. This flaw could allow a HTML mail message to set an arbitrary Referer header, which may lead to a Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF) attack against websites that rely only on the Referer header for protection. (CVE-2007-5960)

All users of thunderbird are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
