Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security-related update.

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in Thunderbird which could potentially result in the execution of arbitrary code or denial of service.

Debian follows the Thunderbird upstream releases. Support for the 60.x series has ended, so starting with this update we're now following the 68.x releases.

Solution

Upgrade the thunderbird packages.

For the oldstable distribution (stretch), this problem has been fixed in version 1:68.2.2-1~deb9u1.

For the stable distribution (buster), this problem has been fixed in version 1:68.2.2-1~deb10u1.
