Description:   Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Thunderbird. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can access restricted resources.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML-based e-mail that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2011-0069, CVE-2011-0070, CVE-2011-0072, CVE-2011-0074, CVE-2011-0075, CVE-2011-0077, CVE-2011-0078, CVE-2011-0079, CVE-2011-0080, CVE-2011-0081]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.
