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 conduct cross-site scripting attacks. A remote user can determine the installation path.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2014-8634, CVE-2014-8635].

The navigator.sendBeacon() function does not honor the cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) specification. A remote user can exploit this to conduct cross-site request forgery attacks [CVE-2014-8638].

A remote Web Proxy can return an HTTP 407 Proxy Authentication response with a specially crafted Set-Cookie header value to inject cookies and conduct session-fixation attacks [CVE-2014-8639].

Christian Holler, Patrick McManus, Christoph Diehl, Gary Kwong, Jesse Ruderman, Byron Campen, Terrence Cole, Nils Ohlmeier, Muneaki Nishimura, and Xiaofeng Zheng of the Blue Lotus Team at Tsinghua University reported these vulnerabilities.

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