    1. Summary:
    
    An updated thunderbird package that fixes several security issues is now
    available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
    
    The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical
    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:
    
    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.
    
    Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed HTML content. An
    HTML mail message containing malicious content could possibly lead to
    arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running
    Thunderbird. (CVE-2011-0080, CVE-2011-0081)
    
    An arbitrary memory write flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled
    out-of-memory conditions. If all memory was consumed when a user viewed a
    malicious HTML mail message, it could possibly lead to arbitrary code
    execution with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird.
    (CVE-2011-0078)
    
    An integer overflow flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled the HTML
    frameset tag. An HTML mail message with a frameset tag containing large
    values for the "rows" and "cols" attributes could trigger this flaw,
    possibly leading to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the
    user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2011-0077)
    
    A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled the HTML iframe tag. An
    HTML mail message with an iframe tag containing a specially-crafted source
    address could trigger this flaw, possibly leading to arbitrary code
    execution with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird.
    (CVE-2011-0075)
    
    A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird displayed multiple marquee
    elements. A malformed HTML mail message could cause Thunderbird to execute
    arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird.
    (CVE-2011-0074)
    
    A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled the nsTreeSelection
    element. Malformed content could cause Thunderbird to execute arbitrary
    code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2011-0073)
    
    A directory traversal flaw was found in the Thunderbird resource://
    protocol handler. Malicious content could cause Thunderbird to access
    arbitrary files accessible to the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2011-0071)
    
    A double free flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled
    "application/http-index-format" documents. A malformed HTTP response could
    cause Thunderbird to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
    running Thunderbird. (CVE-2011-0070)
    
    All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which
    resolves these issues. All running instances of Thunderbird must be
    restarted for the update to take effect.
    
    4. Solution:
    
    Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
    relevant to your system have been applied.
