Two flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web
page containing malicious content could cause Firefox to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running Firefox. (CVE-2014-8634, CVE-2014-8639)
It was found that the Beacon interface implementation in Thunderbird
did not follow the Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) specification.
A web page containing malicious content could allow a remote attacker
to conduct a Cross-Site Request Forgery (XSRF) attack. (CVE-2014-8638)

mail messages. They could be exploited another way in Thunderbird, for
example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed.
After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the
changes to take effect.
