Synopsis: Important: thunderbird security update Advisory ID: SLSA-2013:1480-1 Issue Date: 2013-10-30 CVE Numbers: CVE-2013-5590 CVE-2013-5595 CVE-2013-5597 CVE-2013-5599 CVE-2013-5600 CVE-2013-5601 CVE-2013-5602 CVE-2013-5604 -- Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed content. Malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-5590, CVE-2013-5597, CVE-2013-5599, CVE-2013-5600, CVE-2013-5601, CVE-2013-5602) It was found that the Thunderbird JavaScript engine incorrectly allocated memory for certain functions. An attacker could combine this flaw with other vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-5595) A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled certain Extensible Stylesheet Language Transformations (XSLT) files. An attacker could combine this flaw with other vulnerabilities to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2013-5604) Note: All of the above issues cannot 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. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect. -- SL5 x86_64 thunderbird-17.0.10-1.el5_10.x86_64.rpm thunderbird-debuginfo-17.0.10-1.el5_10.x86_64.rpm i386 thunderbird-17.0.10-1.el5_10.i386.rpm thunderbird-debuginfo-17.0.10-1.el5_10.i386.rpm SL6 x86_64 thunderbird-17.0.10-1.el6_4.x86_64.rpm thunderbird-debuginfo-17.0.10-1.el6_4.x86_64.rpm i386 thunderbird-17.0.10-1.el6_4.i686.rpm thunderbird-debuginfo-17.0.10-1.el6_4.i686.rpm - Scientific Linux Development Team
