                Mandriva Linux Security Update Advisory
 _______________________________________________________________________

 Package name:           mozilla-thunderbird
 Advisory ID:            MDKSA-2005:174
 Date:                   October 6th, 2005

 Affected versions:      10.2, 2006.0
 ______________________________________________________________________

 Problem Description:

 Updated Mozilla Thunderbird packages fix various vulnerabilities:
 
 The run-mozilla.sh script, with debugging enabled, would allow local
 users to create or overwrite arbitrary files via a symlink attack on
 temporary files (CAN-2005-2353).
 
 A bug in the way Thunderbird processes XBM images could be used to
 execute arbitrary code via a specially crafted XBM image file
 (CAN-2005-2701).
 
 A bug in the way Thunderbird handles certain Unicode sequences could be
 used to execute arbitrary code via viewing a specially crafted Unicode
 sequence (CAN-2005-2702).
 
 A bug in the way Thunderbird makes XMLHttp requests could be abused by
 a malicious web page to exploit other proxy or server flaws from the
 victim's machine; however, the default behaviour of the browser is to
 disallow this (CAN-2005-2703).
 
 A bug in the way Thunderbird implemented its XBL interface could be
 abused by a malicious web page to create an XBL binding in such a way
 as to allow arbitrary JavaScript execution with chrome permissions
 (CAN-2005-2704).
 
 An integer overflow in Thunderbird's JavaScript engine could be
 manipulated in certain conditions to allow a malicious web page to
 execute arbitrary code (CAN-2005-2705).
 
 A bug in the way Thunderbird displays about: pages could be used to
 execute JavaScript with chrome privileges (CAN-2005-2706).
 
 A bug in the way Thunderbird opens new windows could be used by a
 malicious web page to construct a new window without any user interface
 elements (such as address bar and status bar) that could be used to
 potentially mislead the user (CAN-2005-2707).
 
 A bug in the way Thunderbird proceesed URLs on the command line could
 be used to execute arbitary commands as the user running Thunderbird;
 this could be abused by clicking on a supplied link, such as from an
 instant messaging client (CAN-2005-2968).
 
 Tom Ferris reported that Thunderbird would crash when processing a
 domain name consisting solely of soft-hyphen characters due to a heap
 overflow when IDN processing results in an empty string after removing
 non-wrapping chracters, such as soft-hyphens.  This could be exploited
 to run or or install malware on the user's computer (CAN-2005-2871).
 
 The updated packages have been patched to correct these issues.
