Multiple vulnerabilities were reported in Mozilla Firefox. A remote user can cause arbitrary code to be executed on the target user's system. A remote user can gain elevated privileges. A remote user can bypass security controls on the target system. A remote user can obtain potentially sensitive information on the target system. A remote user can spoof URLs. Mozilla Thunderbird is affected.|
A remote user can create specially crafted content that, when loaded by the target user, will execute arbitrary code on the target user's system.
