Description Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-10-20 02:22:10 UTC
  Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Thunderbird,
  which potentially can be exploited by malicious people to compromise
  a user's system.

  1) Various errors in the browser engine can be exploited to cause
     a memory corruption.
  2) Various errors in the Javascript engine can be exploited to cause
     a memory corruption.
  Successful exploitation of these vulnerabilities may allow execution
  of arbitrary code.

Fixed in Thunderbird

Mozilla, please advise.
Comment 2 Robert Buchholz (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-10-24 22:29:36 UTC
Should we bump the package ourselves? The patches are available without a lot of hassle.
Comment 3 Sune Kloppenborg Jeppesen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2007-10-25 06:34:14 UTC
In general we should bump packages if maintainers don't respond in a timely manner. Though we should try to poke them on IRC at least beforehand.

Seems I wasn't clear enough. I meant we (Gentoo's mozilla herd) should bump it since Mozilla upstream did not release yet.

Oh, I'm confusing roles here. I won't stand in the way of the herd bumping it's package:)

Where are the patches?

> Where are the patches?

Debian ships some for 1.5 which are pretty much undocumented because of the embargo. Ubuntu released a "pre" snapshot. In light of the other regressions you mentioned we should probably wait for upstream.

To be done:
