    thunderbird vulnerabilities
    ==========================================================================
    
    A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:
    
    - Ubuntu 19.04
    - Ubuntu 18.10
    - Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
    - Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    
    Summary:
    
    Several security issues were fixed in Thunderbird.
    
    Software Description:
    - thunderbird: Mozilla Open Source mail and newsgroup client
    
    Details:
    
    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.
    
    Update instructions:
    
    The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
    package versions:
    
    Ubuntu 19.04:
      thunderbird                     1:60.7.1+build1-0ubuntu0.19.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 18.10:
      thunderbird                     1:60.7.1+build1-0ubuntu0.18.10.1
    
    Ubuntu 18.04 LTS:
      thunderbird                     1:60.7.1+build1-0ubuntu0.18.04.1
    
    Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
      thunderbird                     1:60.7.1+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1
    
    After a standard system update you need to restart Thunderbird to make
    all the necessary changes.
