Debian: New Mozilla Thunderbird packages fix several vulnerabilities

Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and derived products such as Mozilla Thunderbird. Fernando Ribeiro discovered that a vulnerability in the getRawDER functionallows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (hang) and possibly execute arbitrary code. Daniel Bleichenbacher recently described an implementation error in RSA signature verification that cause the application to incorrectly trust SSL certificates. Priit Laes reported that that a JavaScript regular expression can trigger a heap-based buffer overflow which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code. A vulnerability has been discovered that allows remote attackers to bypass the security model and inject content into the sub-frame of another site. Georgi Guninski demonstrated that even with JavaScript disabled in mail (the default) an attacker can still execute JavaScript when a mail message is viewed, replied to, or forwarded. Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Firefox, Thunderbird and SeaMonkey allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service, corrupt memory, and possibly execute arbitrary code. Fixed packages are available from security.debian.org.

Several security related problems have been discovered in Mozilla and
derived products such as Mozilla Thunderbird.  The Common
Vulnerabilities and Exposures project identifies the following
vulnerabilities:

CVE-2006-2788

    Fernando Ribeiro discovered that a vulnerability in the getRawDER
    functionallows remote attackers to cause a denial of service
    (hang) and possibly execute arbitrary code.

CVE-2006-4340

    Daniel Bleichenbacher recently described an implementation error
    in RSA signature verification that cause the application to
    incorrectly trust SSL certificates.

CVE-2006-4565, CVE-2006-4566

    Priit Laes reported that that a JavaScript regular expression can
    trigger a heap-based buffer overflow which allows remote attackers
    to cause a denial of service and possibly execute arbitrary code.

CVE-2006-4568

    A vulnerability has been discovered that allows remote attackers
    to bypass the security model and inject content into the sub-frame
    of another site.

CVE-2006-4570

    Georgi Guninski demonstrated that even with JavaScript disabled in
    mail (the default) an attacker can still execute JavaScript when a
    mail message is viewed, replied to, or forwarded.

CVE-2006-4571

    Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in Firefox, Thunderbird and
    SeaMonkey allow remote attackers to cause a denial of service,
    corrupt memory, and possibly execute arbitrary code.

For the stable distribution (sarge) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.0.2-2.sarge1.0.8c.1.

For the unstable distribution (sid) these problems have been fixed in
version 1.5.0.7-1.

We recommend that you upgrade your Mozilla Thunderbird packages.
