    1. Summary:
    
    An updated thunderbird package that fixes multiple security issues is now
    available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, 6, and 7.
    
    Red Hat Product Security 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:
    
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
    Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (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 web content. A web
    page containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or,
    potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
    Thunderbird. (CVE-2014-1587, CVE-2014-1590, CVE-2014-1592, CVE-2014-1593)
    
    A flaw was found in the Alarm API, which could allow applications to
    schedule actions to be run in the future. A malicious web application could
    use this flaw to bypass the same-origin policy. (CVE-2014-1594)
    
    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.
    
    This update disables SSL 3.0 support by default in Thunderbird. Details on
    how to re-enable SSL 3.0 support are available at:
    https://access.redhat.com/articles/1284233
    
    Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues.
    Upstream acknowledges Gary Kwong, Randell Jesup, Nils Ohlmeier, Jesse
    Ruderman, Max Jonas Werner, Joe Vennix, Berend-Jan Wever, Abhishek Arya,
    and Boris Zbarsky as the original reporters of these issues.
    
    For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security
    advisories for Thunderbird 31.3.0. You can find a link to the Mozilla
    advisories in the References section of this erratum.
    
    All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which
    contains Thunderbird version 31.3.0, 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/articles/11258
