Mozilla Updates for Multiple Vulnerabilities
- Mozilla Firefox
- Mozilla Thunderbird
Other products based on Mozilla components may also be affected.
The Mozilla web browser and derived products contain several vulnerabilities, the most severe of which could allow a remote attacker to execute arbitrary code on an affected system.
Mozilla has released new versions of Firefox and Thunderbird to address several vulnerabilities. Further details about these vulnerabilities are available from Mozilla and the Vulnerability Notes Database. An attacker could exploit these vulnerabilities by convincing a user to view a specially-crafted HTML document, such as a web page or an HTML email message.
While the impacts of the individual vulnerabilities vary, the most severe could allow a remote, unauthenticated attacker to execute arbitrary code on a vulnerable system. An attacker may also be able to cause a denial of service or obtain private information.
Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 was made available on July 19, 2007 and can be downloaded from the Mozilla Thunderbird download page.
