Ubuntu 16.04 LTS / 18.04 LTS / 18.10 / 19.04 : Thunderbird vulnerabilities (USN-4028-1)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 126099

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

Multiple memory safety issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted message, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, or execute arbitrary code.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Update the affected thunderbird package.
