This update has been rated as having moderate security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team. Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client. Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed HTML mail content. An HTML mail message containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird.
