Security researcher regenrecht reported, via TippingPoint's Zero Day Initiative, a use-after-free using the
domDoc pointer within Vibrate library. This can lead to arbitrary code execution when exploited.
In general these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird and SeaMonkey products because scripting is disabled, but are potentially a risk in browser or browser-like contexts in those products.
