An updated thunderbird package that fixes several security issues is now

available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.

 

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having

important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base

scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each

vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section.

 

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

 

RHEL Optional Productivity Applications (v. 5 server) - i386, x86_64

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

 

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

 

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed content. Malicious

content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary

code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-0788)

 

A flaw was found in the way Same Origin Wrappers were implemented in

Thunderbird. Malicious content could use this flaw to bypass the

same-origin policy and execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the

user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-0795)

 

A flaw was found in the embedded WebGL library in Thunderbird. Malicious

content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary

code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. Note: This issue

only affected systems using the Intel Mesa graphics drivers.

(CVE-2013-0796)

 

An out-of-bounds write flaw was found in the embedded Cairo library in

Thunderbird. Malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or,

potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running

Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-0800)

 

A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled the JavaScript history

functions. Malicious content could cause a page to be displayed that

has a baseURI pointing to a different site, allowing cross-site scripting

(XSS) and phishing attacks. (CVE-2013-0793)

 

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues.

Upstream acknowledges Olli Pettay, Jesse Ruderman, Boris Zbarsky, Christian

Holler, Milan Sreckovic, Joe Drew, Cody Crews, miaubiz, Abhishek Arya, and

Mariusz Mlynski as the original reporters of these issues.

 

Note: All issues except CVE-2013-0800 cannot be exploited by a

specially-crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default

for mail messages. They could be exploited another way in Thunderbird, for

example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed.

 

All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which

contains Thunderbird version 17.0.5 ESR, which corrects these issues. After

installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to

take effect.

 

4. Solution:

 

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata

relevant to your system have been applied.

 

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to

use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at

https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258
