http://cve.mitre.org/cgi-bin/cvename.cgi?name=CVE-2007-3845

Description:
Previous versions of the thunderbird package are vulnerable to a flaw in
handling of "about:blank" windows. A malicious web server could exploit
this to steal sensitive information or modify contents of other open web
pages.

In addition, a malicious web server could execute helpers with arbitrary
arguments due to thunderbird's mishandling of certain types of characters when
launching external programs.
