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 local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-0835, CVE-2015-0836].

When a local user runs the Mozilla updater (updater.exe) directly, the updater loads DLL files (bcrypt.dll and others) from the current working directory or from Windows temporary directories. A local user can create a specially crafted DLL and cause the DLL to be executed by the target user [CVE-2015-0833].

A remote user can create specially crafted content with IndexedDB that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a use-after-free memory error in mozilla::dom::IndexedDB::IDBObjectStore::CreateIndex() and crash or execute arbitrary code [CVE-2015-0831].

A remote user can create a specially crafted SVG graphic that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory error in mozilla::gfx::CopyRect() and read uninitialized memory when rendered [CVE-2015-0827].

A remote user can manipulate the form autocomplete function to cause a local file in a known location to be uploaded [CVE-2015-0822].

Carsten Book, Christoph Diehl, Gary Kwong, Jan de Mooij, Liz Henry, Byron Campen, Tom Schuster, Ryan VanderMeulen, Christian Holler, Jesse Ruderman, Randell Jesup, Robin Whittleton, Jon Coppeard, Nikhil Marathe, Holger Fuhrmannek, Paul Bandha, Abhishek Arya (Inferno), and Armin Razmdjou 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 local user can obtain elevated privileges on the target system.

A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information.

Solution:   The vendor has issued a fix (31.5).
