Date:  Jun 22 2011
Impact:   Execution of arbitrary code via network, User access via network
Fix Available:  Yes  Vendor Confirmed:  Yes  
Version(s): prior to 3.1.11
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 obtain cookies from another domain in certain cases.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2011-2364, CVE-2011-2374, CVE-2011-2375, CVE-2011-2376]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

Bob Clary, Kevin Brosnan, Nils, Gary Kwong, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Biesinger, Bas Schouten, Igor Bukanov, Bill McCloskey, Olli Pettay, Daniel Veditz, Marcia Knous, Luke Wagner, and secenv reported these vulnerabilities.

A remote user can create a specially crafted XUL document that, when loaded by the target user, will access deleted memory (while JavaScript is disabled) and potentially execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2011-2373]. Martin Barbella reported this vulnerability.

A remote user can create multipart/x-mixed-replace images that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-2377]. Jordi Chancel reported this vulnerability.

A remote user can create a JavaScript Array object with the length set to an extremely large value and then call the reduceRight method to execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-2371]. Chris Rohlf and Yan Ivnitskiy of Matasano Security reported this vulnerability.

A remote user can invoke a specially crafted XUL document that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a dangling pointer error (use-after-free) and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-0083, CVE-2011-0085, CVE-2011-2363]. Firefox 3.x is affected. regenrecht reported this vulnerability via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative.

A remote user can set a cookie for a target domain followed by a period character (e.g., 'example.com.') to obtain cookies from another domain (e.g., 'example.com') [CVE-2011-2362]. Firefox 3.x is affected. Mozilla security researcher David Chan reported this vulnerability.

Impact:   A remote user can create HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.

A remote user can obtain cookies from another domain in certain cases.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (3.1.11).
