Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains an email client that is potentially
affected by a memory corruption vulnerability.

Description :

The installed version of Thunderbird 10.x is earlier than 10.0.1 and
is, therefore, potentially affected by a memory corruption

A use-after-free error exists in the method
'nsXBLDocumentInfo::ReadPrototypeBindings' and XBL bindings are not
properly removed from a hash table in the event of failure. Clean-up
processes may then attempt to use this data and cause application
crashes. These application crashes are potentially exploitable.
