 Mandriva Linux Security Advisory                         MDVSA-2010:051

 Package : mozilla-thunderbird
 Date    : March 1, 2010
 Affected: 2008.0, 2009.1, 2010.0

 Problem Description:

 A vulnerabilitiy has been found and corrected in mozilla-thunderbird:
 Security researcher Alin Rad Pop of Secunia Research reported that
 the HTML parser incorrectly freed used memory when insufficient space
 was available to process remaining input. Under such circumstances,
 memory occupied by in-use objects was freed and could later be filled
 with attacker-controlled text. These conditions could result in the
 execution or arbitrary code if methods on the freed objects were
 subsequently called (CVE-2009-1571).
 Packages for 2008.0 are provided for Corporate Desktop 2008.0
 The updated packages have been patched to correct this issue.
