Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2005-247
2005-03-23
———————————————————————

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : thunderbird
Version : 1.0.2
Release : 1.3.1
Summary : Mozilla Thunderbird mail/newsgroup client
Description :
Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

———————————————————————
Update Information:

A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Thunderbird processes GIF
images. It is possible for an attacker to create a specially crafted GIF
image, which when viewed by a victim will execute arbitrary code as the
victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org)
has assigned the name CAN-2005-0399 to this issue.

A bug was found in the Thunderbird string handling functions. If a
malicious website is able to exhaust a system’s memory, it becomes
possible to execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0255 to
this issue.

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this updated package
which contains Thunderbird version 1.0.2 and is not vulnerable to these
issues.

This update enables pango rendering by default.

There was some problems with this update, Fedora released thunderbird-1.0.2-1.3.2 today with this information:
Quote:
Update Information:

There was an issue with a patch being incorrectly applied which caused
the Advanced Preferences panel to fail to load.

There was an issue where thunderbird requested the incorrect system
colors from GTK, causing grey to be the default background color for
many people.

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this updated package
which contains fixes for these issues.

At the time of this post thunderbird-1.0.2-1.3.2 has not made it to BLAG yet. I'll try to keep an eye out for it tonight and post the full announcement when it does.
