Description

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.
