Description

Versions of Mozilla Thunderbird prior to 17.0 are affected by the following security issues :

- Several memory safety bugs exist in the browser engine used in Mozilla-based products that could be exploited to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-5842, CVE-2012-5843) - An error exists in the method 'image::RasterImage::DrawFrameTo' related to GIF images that could allow a heap-based buffer overflow, leading to arbitrary code execution.

(CVE-2012-4208) - Errors exist related to 'evalInSandbox', 'HZ-GB-2312' charset, frames and the 'location' object, and 'cross-origin wrappers' that could allow cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks.
