Description

Mozilla Firefox 4.x through 6, Thunderbird before 7.0, and SeaMonkey before 2.4 do not prevent manual add-on installation in response to the holding of the Enter key, which allows user-assisted remote attackers to bypass intended access restrictions via a crafted web site that triggers an unspecified internal error.

Solution(s)

  • mozilla-thunderbird-upgrade-3_1_15
  • mozilla-thunderbird-upgrade-7_0
