==========================================================================

A security issue affects these releases of Ubuntu and its derivatives:

- Ubuntu 21.10
- Ubuntu 21.04
- Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 18.04 LTS

Summary:

Thunderbird could be made to crash or run programs if it verified a
specially crafted signature.

Software Description:
- thunderbird: Mozilla Open Source mail and newsgroup client

Details:

Tavis Ormandy discovered that NSS, included with Thunderbird, incorrectly
handled verifying DSA/RSA-PSS signatures. A remote attacker could use this
issue to cause Thunderbird to crash, resulting in a denial of service, or
possibly execute arbitrary code.
