Fedora 10 : thunderbird-2.0.0.21-1.fc10 (2009-2882)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 36827

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed HTML mail content. An HTML mail message containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2009-0040, CVE-2009-0352, CVE-2009-0353, CVE-2009-0772, CVE-2009-0774, CVE-2009-0775) Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. An HTML mail message containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a Thunderbird user into surrendering sensitive information.
(CVE-2009-0355, CVE-2009-0776) Note: JavaScript support is disabled by default in Thunderbird. None of the above issues are exploitable unless JavaScript is enabled.

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.

Solution

Update the affected thunderbird package.
