    1. Summary:
    
    An updated thunderbird package that fixes several 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.

    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

    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-2014-1533, CVE-2014-1538, CVE-2014-1541)
    
    Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues.
    Upstream acknowledges Gary Kwong, Christoph Diehl, Christian Holler, Hannes
    Verschore, Jan de Mooij, Ryan VanderMeulen, Jeff Walden, Kyle Huey,
    Abhishek Arya, and Nils as the original reporters of these issues.
    
    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.
    
    For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security
    advisories for Thunderbird 24.6.0. 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 24.6.0, 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
