A cross-site scripting flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled
the jar: URI scheme. It may be possible for a malicious HTML mail
message to leverage this flaw, and conduct a cross-site scripting
attack against a user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2007-5947)
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-2007-5959)
A race condition existed when Thunderbird set the 'window.location'
property when displaying HTML mail content. This flaw could allow a
HTML mail message to set an arbitrary Referer header, which may lead
to a Cross-site Request Forgery (CSRF) attack against websites that
rely only on the Referer header for protection. (CVE-2007-5960)
