Ubuntu Security Notice 3416-1 - Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit these to bypass same-origin restrictions, bypass CSP restrictions, obtain sensitive information, spoof the origin of modal alerts, cause a denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code. Various other issues were also addressed.
