Description:   Several 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 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-2011-2995, CVE-2011-2996, CVE-2011-2997]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A remote user can return multiple Location headers to cause Thunderbird to process the wrong location header [CVE-2011-3000].

A remote user can cause the target user to download and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-2372] or install an arbitrary extension [CVE-2011-3001] while holding down the Enter key.

A remote user can exploit a flaw in the YARR regular expression library to execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-3232].

A specially crafted '.ogg' file can trigger a use-after-free memory error and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2011-3005].

Benjamin Smedberg, Bob Clary, Jesse Ruderman, Josh Aas, Andrew McCreight, Andreas Gal, Gary Kwong, Igor Bukanov, Jason Orendorff, Marcia Knous, Ian Graham of Citrix Online, Mariusz Mlynski, Aki Helin, and sczimmer reported these vulnerabilities.

Impact:   A remote user can create content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (7.0).
