Description Huzaifa S. Sidhpurwala 2013-09-17 10:24:18 EDT
Security researcher Aki Helin reported that combining lists, floats, and multiple columns could trigger a potentially exploitable buffer overflow.

In general this flaw cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird product because scripting is disabled, but is potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts.
