Summary     : Mozilla Thunderbird mail/newsgroup client
Description :
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

Update Information:

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.    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-2008-0412, CVE-2008-0413, CVE-2008-0415, CVE-2008-0419)    Several flaws
were found in the way Thunderbird displayed malformed HTML mail content. A HTML
mail message containing specially-crafted content could trick a user into
surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-0591, CVE-2008-0593)    A flaw was
found in the way Thunderbird handles certain chrome URLs. If a user has certain
extensions installed, it could allow a malicious HTML mail message to steal
sensitive session data. Note: this flaw does not affect a default installation
of Thunderbird. (CVE-2008-0418)    Note: JavaScript support is disabled by
default in Thunderbird; the above issues are not exploitable unless JavaScript
is enabled.    A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird saves certain text files.
If a remote site offers a file of type "plain/text", rather than "text/plain",
Thunderbird will not show future "text/plain" content to the user, forcing them
to save those files locally to view the content. (CVE-2008-0592)     Users of
thunderbird are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
backported patches to resolve these issues.
