thunderbird vulnerabilities
==========================================================================

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

- - Ubuntu 17.10

- - Ubuntu 14.04 LTS

Summary:

Several security issues were fixed in Thunderbird.

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

Details:

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 cause a denial of service,
or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2018-5125, CVE-2018-5127, CVE-2018-5129,
CVE-2018-5144, CVE-2018-5145, CVE-2018-5146)

Update instructions:

The problem can be corrected by updating your system to the following
package versions:

Ubuntu 17.10:
  thunderbird                     1:52.7.0+build1-0ubuntu0.17.10.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  thunderbird                     1:52.7.0+build1-0ubuntu0.14.04.1

all the necessary changes.
