   (XSS)          
   Bug ID: 6689244, 6701932

   Product
   Mozilla Thunderbird v2.0
   Solaris 10 Operating System

   Date of Resolved Release: 10-Jul-2008

   SA Document Body
   Security Vulnerabilities in Thunderbird for Solaris May Result in Privilege 
   Escalation or Cross-Site Scripting (XSS)

   1. Impact

   Multiple security vulnerabilities in the thunderbird(1) application
   shipped with Solaris 10 may allow remote unprivileged users to execute
   arbitrary code with the privileges of the current user or cause
   Cross-site Scripting (XSS) risks on sites.

   The following Mozilla advisories describe the vulnerabities:

   2. Contributing Factors

   These issues can occur in the following releases:

   SPARC Platform
     * Thunderbird 2.0 for Solaris 10 without patch 125541-03
     * OpenSolaris based upon builds snv_89 or earlier

   x86 Platform
     * Thunderbird 2.0 for Solaris 10 without patch 125542-03
     * OpenSolaris based upon builds snv_89 or earlier

   Note: Solaris 8 and Solaris 9 do not ship Thunderbird and therefore
   are not affected by these issues.
   OpenSolaris distributions may include additional bug fixes above and
   beyond the build from which it was derived. The base build can be
   derived as follows:

   $uname -a
   SunOS hostname 5.11 snv_86 i86pc i386 i86pc

   3. Symptoms

   There are no predictable symptoms that would indicate the described
   issues have been exploited.

   4. Workaround

   To work around the issues described in MFSA 2008-01, MFSA 2008-03,
   MFSA 2008-13, MFSA 2008-14 and MFSA 2008-15, disable JavaScript by
   doing the following:

    1. Open the "Preferences" dialog from the Edit menu.
    2. Select the "Privacy" tab.
    3. Check the "Block JavaScript in mail messages" check box.

   To work around the issue described in MFSA 2008-05, disable
   "flat-packaged" add-ons.
   To work around the issue described in MFSA 2008-12, set the
   "mailnews.display.disallow_mime_handlers" property to any value
   greater than or equal to `3' by doing the following:

    1. From the menu, go to Edit->Preferences->Advanced->Config Editor
    2. Type the property name into the Filter box
       (mailnews.display.disallow_mime_handlers)
