Synopsis :

The remote Fedora Core host is missing a security update.

Description :

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processes certain
malformed JavaScript code. A malicious HTML mail message could cause
the execution of JavaScript code in such a way that could cause
Thunderbird to crash or execute arbitrary code as the user running
Thunderbird. (CVE-2006-5463, CVE-2006-5747, CVE-2006-5748)

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird renders HTML mail
messages. A malicious HTML mail message could cause the mail client to
crash or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running
Thunderbird. (CVE-2006-5464)

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this update, which
contains Thunderbird version 1.5.0.8 that corrects these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
