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

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

- Ubuntu 16.10
- Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 14.04 LTS
- Ubuntu 12.04 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 bypass same origin
restrictions, obtain sensitive information, cause a denial of service via
application crash or hang, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2017-5398,
CVE-2017-5400, CVE-2017-5401, CVE-2017-5402, CVE-2017-5404, CVE-2017-5405,
CVE-2017-5407, CVE-2017-5408, CVE-2017-5410)

Update instructions:

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

Ubuntu 16.10:
  thunderbird                     1:45.8.0+build1-0ubuntu0.16.10.1

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS:
  thunderbird                     1:45.8.0+build1-0ubuntu0.16.04.1

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS:
  thunderbird                     1:45.8.0+build1-0ubuntu0.14.04.1

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS:

After a standard system update you need to restart Thunderbird to make
all the necessary changes.
