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 conduct cross-site request forgery attacks. A remote user can bypass same-origin policy.

A remote user can create specially crafted HTML that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a memory corruption error and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-0814, CVE-2015-0815].

A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will trigger a use-after-free memory error in the AppendElements() function in the Fluendo MP3 GStreamer plugin and execute arbitrary code on the target system [CVE-2015-0813]. Only Linux-based systems are affected.

A remote user can load a document via a 'resource:' URL to bypass same-origin policy and load privileged chrome pages and execute arbitrary code [CVE-2015-0816].

A remote user can exploit a flaw in the processing of cross-origin resource sharing (CORS) requests to potentially conduct cross-site request forgery (XSRF) attacks [CVE-2015-0807].

A remote user can exploit a anchor navigation flaw in SVG content navigation to bypass same-origin policy [CVE-2015-0801].

Christian Holler, Byron Campen, Andrew McCreight, Gary Kwong, Karl Tomlinson, Randell Jesup, Shu-yu Guo, Steve Fink, Tooru Fujisawa, Aki Helin, Mariusz Mlynski (HP Zero Day Initiative's Pwn2Own contest), Christoph Kerschbaumer, Muneaki Nishimura, Olli Pettay, and Boris Zbarsky reported these vulnerabilities.
