We study the full Navier-Stokes-Fourier system governing the motion of a general viscous, heat-conducting, and compressible fluid subject to stochastic perturbation. Stochastic effects are implemented through (i) random initial data, (ii) a forcing term in the momentum equation represented by a multiplicative white noise, (iii) random heat source in the internal energy balance. We establish existence of a weak martingale solution under physically grounded structural assumptions. As a byproduct of our theory we can show that stationary martingale solutions only exist in certain trivial cases.
