From: Jamie Strandboge <jamie () canonical com>

===========================================================
Ubuntu Security Notice USN-782-1              June 25, 2009
thunderbird vulnerabilities
CVE-2009-1303, CVE-2009-1305, CVE-2009-1306, CVE-2009-1307,
CVE-2009-1308, CVE-2009-1309, CVE-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1833,
CVE-2009-1836, CVE-2009-1838, CVE-2009-1841
===========================================================

A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS
Ubuntu 8.10
Ubuntu 9.04

This advisory also applies to the corresponding versions of
Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS:
  thunderbird                     2.0.0.22+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.04.1

Ubuntu 8.10:
  thunderbird                     2.0.0.22+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.8.10.1

Ubuntu 9.04:
  thunderbird                     2.0.0.22+build1+nobinonly-0ubuntu0.9.04.1

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Thunderbird to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Several flaws were discovered in the JavaScript engine of Thunderbird. If a
user had JavaScript enabled and were tricked into viewing malicious web
content, a remote attacker could cause a denial of service or possibly
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the
program. (CVE-2009-1303, CVE-2009-1305, CVE-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1833,
CVE-2009-1838)

Several flaws were discovered in the way Thunderbird processed malformed
URI schemes. If a user were tricked into viewing a malicious website and
had JavaScript and plugins enabled, a remote attacker could execute
arbitrary JavaScript or steal private data. (CVE-2009-1306, CVE-2009-1307,
CVE-2009-1309)

Cefn Hoile discovered Thunderbird did not adequately protect against
embedded third-party stylesheets. If JavaScript were enabled, an attacker
could exploit this to perform script injection attacks using XBL bindings.
(CVE-2009-1308)

Shuo Chen, Ziqing Mao, Yi-Min Wang, and Ming Zhang discovered that
Thunderbird did not properly handle error responses when connecting to a
proxy server. If a user had JavaScript enabled while using Thunderbird to
view websites and a remote attacker were able to perform a
man-in-the-middle attack, this flaw could be exploited to view sensitive
information. (CVE-2009-1836)

It was discovered that Thunderbird could be made to run scripts with
elevated privileges. If a user had JavaScript enabled while having
certain non-default add-ons installed and were tricked into viewing a
malicious website, an attacker could cause a chrome privileged object, such
as the browser sidebar, to run arbitrary code via interactions with the
attacker controlled website. (CVE-2009-1841)
