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 cause denial of service conditions.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2014-1587, CVE-2014-1588].

A remote user can create HTML that supplies a specially crafted JavaScript object to XMLHttpRequest to target client to crash [CVE-2014-1590].

A remote user can trigger a use-after-free in xul.dll!nsHtml5TreeOperation to potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2014-1592].

A remote user can create specially crafted media content to trigger a stack overflow in mozilla::FileBlockCache::Read and potentially execute arbitrary code [CVE-2014-1593].

A remote user can cause a bad casting from BasicThebesLayer to BasicContainerLayer, resulting in undefined behavior, which may allow code execution with some compilers [CVE-2014-1594].

On OS X version 10.10, the CoreGraphics framework records potentially sensitive information to the '/tmp' directory. A local user can view this information, which may include usernames, passwords, and other input data [CVE-2014-1595].

Gary Kwong, Randell Jesup, Nils Ohlmeier, Jesse Ruderman, Max Jonas Werner, Christian Holler, Jon Coppeard, Eric Rahm, Byron Campen, Eric Rescorla, Xidorn Quan, Joe Vennix from Rapid7, Berend-Jan Wever, Abhishek Arya (Inferno) of the Google Chrome Security Team, Byoungyoung Lee, Chengyu Song, and Taesoo Kim at the Georgia Tech Information Security Center (GTISC), and Kent Howard 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.

A remote user can cause denial of service conditions.
