Atte Kettunen discovered a buffer overflow during the rendering of SVG content with certain CSS properties in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted message with scripting enabled, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking Thunderbird.
