Description Josh Bressers 2009-06-24 11:42:57 UTC
From upstream:

Bernd Jendrissek reported a crash in Thunderbird when viewing a multipart/alternative mail message with a text/enhanced part. Internally this led to operations on an unexpected type of object resulting in a crash which may be exploitable.

Mozilla Thunderbird before and SeaMonkey before 1.1.17 allow
