Mandrake Linux Security Advisory : mozilla-thunderbird (MDKSA-2006:052)

High Nessus Plugin ID 21004


The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security updates.


The WYSIWYG rendering engine in Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.7 and earlier allows user-complicit attackers to bypass JavaScript security settings and obtain sensitive information or cause a crash via an e-mail containing a JavaScript URI in the SRC attribute of an IFRAME tag, which is executed when the user edits the e-mail.

Updated packages have been patched to address this issue.


Update the affected mozilla-thunderbird, mozilla-thunderbird-enigmail and / or mozilla-thunderbird-enigmime packages.
