Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Ubuntu USN-352-1 fixed a flaw in the verification of PKCS certificate signatures. Ulrich Kuehn discovered a variant of the original attack which the original fix did not cover. (CVE-2006-5462) Various flaws have been reported that allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code with user privileges by tricking the user into opening a malicious email containing JavaScript. Please note that JavaScript is disabled by default for emails, and it is not recommended to enable it. (CVE-2006-5463, CVE-2006-5464, CVE-2006-5747, CVE-2006-5748)
