    description Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed content. Malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2012-1948, CVE-2012-1951, CVE-2012-1952, CVE-2012-1953, CVE-2012-1954, CVE-2012-1958, CVE-2012-1962, CVE-2012-1967) Malicious content could bypass same-compartment security wrappers (SCSW) and execute arbitrary code with chrome privileges. (CVE-2012-1959) A flaw in the way Thunderbird called history.forward and history.back could allow an attacker to conceal a malicious URL, possibly tricking a user into believing they are viewing trusted content. (CVE-2012-1955) A flaw in a parser utility class used by Thunderbird to parse feeds (such as RSS) could allow an attacker to execute arbitrary JavaScript with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. This issue could have affected other Thunderbird components or add-ons that assume the class returns sanitized input. (CVE-2012-1957) A flaw in the way Thunderbird handled X-Frame-Options headers could allow malicious content to perform a clickjacking attack. (CVE-2012-1961) A flaw in the way Content Security Policy (CSP) reports were generated by Thunderbird could allow malicious content to steal a victim's OAuth 2.0 access tokens and OpenID credentials. (CVE-2012-1963) A flaw in the way Thunderbird handled certificate warnings could allow a man-in-the-middle attacker to create a crafted warning, possibly tricking a user into accepting an arbitrary certificate as trusted. (CVE-2012-1964) A previous nss update introduced a mitigation for the CVE-2011-3389 flaw. For compatibility reasons, it remains disabled by default in the nss packages. This update makes Thunderbird enable the mitigation by default. It can be disabled by setting the NSS_SSL_CBC_RANDOM_IV environment variable to 0 before launching Thunderbird. Note: None of the issues in this advisory can be exploited by a specially crafted HTML mail message as JavaScript is disabled by default for mail messages. They could be exploited another way in Thunderbird, for example, when viewing the full remote content of an RSS feed. All Thunderbird users should upgrade to this updated package, which contains Thunderbird version 10.0.6 ESR, which corrects these issues. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

    description Several vulnerabilities were discovered in Icedove, Debian's version of the Mozilla Thunderbird mail and news client. - CVE-2012-1948 Multiple unspecified vulnerabilities in the browser engine were fixed. - CVE-2012-1950 The underlying browser engine allows address bar spoofing through drag-and-drop. - CVE-2012-1954 A use-after-free vulnerability in the nsDocument::AdoptNode function allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service (heap memory corruption) or possibly execute arbitrary code. - CVE-2012-1967 An error in the implementation of the JavaScript sandbox allows execution of JavaScript code with improper privileges using javascript: URLs.

This can lead to arbitrary code execution.

    description Several vulnerabilities have been discovered in Iceweasel, a web browser based on Firefox. The included XULRunner library provides rendering services for several other applications included in Debian. - CVE-2012-1948 Benoit Jacob, Jesse Ruderman, Christian Holler, and Bill McCloskey identified several memory safety problems that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2012-1950 Mario Gomes and Code Audit Labs discovered that it is possible to force Iceweasel to display the URL of the previous entered site through drag and drop actions to the address bar. This can be abused to perform phishing attacks. - CVE-2012-1954 Abhishek Arya discovered a use-after-free problem in nsDocument::AdoptNode that may lead to the execution of arbitrary code. - CVE-2012-1966 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that it is possible to perform cross-site scripting attacks through the context menu when using data: URLs. - CVE-2012-1967 'moz_bug_r_a4' discovered that in certain cases, javascript: URLs can be executed so that scripts can escape the JavaScript sandbox and run with elevated privileges. Note: We'd like to advise users of Iceweasel's 3.5 branch in Debian stable to consider to upgrade to the Iceweasel 10.0 ESR (Extended Support Release) which is now available in Debian Backports. Although Debian will continue to support Iceweasel 3.5 in stable with security updates, this can only be done on a best effort basis as upstream provides no such support anymore. On top of that, the 10.0 branch adds proactive security features to the browser.
