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 potentially sensitive information.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2014-1553, CVE-2014-1554, CVE-2014-1562].

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free in animating SVG content [CVE-2014-1563].

A remote user can create a specially crafted GIF image that, when rendered by the target user, will access uninitialized memory [CVE-2014-1564].

A remote user can trigger an out-of-bounds read in mozilla::dom::AudioEventTimeline() the creation of an audio timeline in Web Audio to read random memory contents [CVE-2014-1565].

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free in text layout in DirectionalityUtils() [CVE-2014-1567].

Jan de Mooij, Christian Holler, Karl Tomlinson, Randell Jesup, Gary Kwong, Jesse Ruderman, JW Wang, David Weir, Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team, Google security researcher Michal Zalewski, regenrecht (via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative), and Holger Fuhrmannek reported these vulnerabilities.

Advisory ID:       RHSA-2014:1145-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2014-1145.html

=====================================================================

1. Summary:

An updated thunderbird package that fixes two security issues is now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.

Red Hat Product Security 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.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 5 client) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Optional Productivity Applications (v. 5 server) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server Optional (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (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-2014-1562, CVE-2014-1567)

Red Hat would like to thank the Mozilla project for reporting these issues.
Upstream acknowledges Jan de Mooij as the original reporter of
CVE-2014-1562, and regenrecht as the original reporter of CVE-2014-1567.

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 24.8.0. 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 24.8.0, 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
https://access.redhat.com/articles/11258
