Version(s): prior to 31.2
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 create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2014-1574, CVE-2014-1575]. The code will run with the privileges of the target user.

A buffer overflow in nsTransformedTextRun() when making capitalization style changes during CSS parsing may allow remote code execution [CVE-2014-1576].

An out-of-bounds read may occur in mozilla::dom::OscillatorNodeEngine::ComputeCustom() in Web Audio when interacting with custom waveforms with invalid values [CVE-2014-1577].

An out-of-bounds write may occur in get_tile() when buffering WebM format video containing frames with invalid tile sizes [CVE-2014-1578].

A use-after-free may occur in DirectionalityUtils() [CVE-2014-1581].

Video sharing using WebRTC within an <iframe> may continue to be shared even if the user selects the "Stop Sharing" button in the controls [CVE-2014-1585, CVE-2014-1586].

A specially crafted app can invoke the AlarmAPI to read the values of cross-origin references in the alarm's JSON data [CVE-2014-1583]. For example, an iframe's location object can be accessed.

Bobby Holley, Christian Holler, David Bolter, Byron Campen, Jon Coppeard, Carsten Book, Martijn Wargers, Shih-Chiang Chien, Terrence Cole, Eric Rahm, Jeff Walden, Atte Kettunen from OUSPG, Holger Fuhrmannek, Abhishek Arya (Inferno), regenrecht (via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative), Mozilla developer Eric Shepherd, Mozilla developer Jan-Ivar Bruaroey, and Mozilla developer Boris Zbarsky 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 (31.2).
