-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE----- Hash: SHA1 ===================================================================== Red Hat Security Advisory Synopsis: Important: thunderbird security update Advisory ID: RHSA-2012:1413-01 Product: Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advisory URL: https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-1413.html Issue date: 2012-10-29 CVE Names: CVE-2012-4194 CVE-2012-4195 CVE-2012-4196 ===================================================================== 1. Summary: An updated thunderbird package that fixes multiple security issues is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6. The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having important security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores, which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability from the CVE links in the References section. 2. Relevant releases/architectures: RHEL Optional Productivity Applications (v. 5 server) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64 Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64 3. Description: Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Multiple flaws were found in the location object implementation in Thunderbird. Malicious content could be used to perform cross-site scripting attacks, bypass the same-origin policy, or cause Thunderbird to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2012-4194, CVE-2012-4195, CVE-2012-4196) Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues. Upstream acknowledges Mariusz Mlynski, moz_bug_r_a4, and Antoine Delignat-Lavaud as the original reporters of these issues. Note: None of the issues in this advisory can be exploited by a specially-crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. They could be exploited another way in Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed. All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains Thunderbird version 10.0.10 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect. 4. Solution: Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata relevant to your system have been applied. This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/articles/11258 5.
