Description

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, bypass same-origin protections, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2019-18511, CVE-2019-11691, CVE-2019-11692, CVE-2019-11693, CVE-2019-9797, CVE-2019-9800, CVE-2019-9817, CVE-2019-9819, CVE-2019-9820)

Multiple security 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. (CVE-2019-5798, CVE-2019-7317)

A type confusion bug was discovered with object groups and UnboxedObjects. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context after enabling the UnboxedObjects feature, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass security checks. (CVE-2019-9816)

It was discovered that history data could be exposed via drag and drop of hyperlinks to and from bookmarks. If a user were tricked in to dragging a specially crafted hyperlink to a bookmark toolbar or sidebar, and subsequently back in to the web content area, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2019-11698).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
