Multiple vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla Thunderbird, which can be exploited by malicious people to conduct cross-site scripting attacks and compromise a user's system.
For more information, see vulnerabilities #1, #3, #4, #5, #6, #7, #9, #10, and #11: SA19873
A boundary error has also been reported in the handling of VCard attachments. This can be exploited to cause a heap-based buffer overflow via a malicious VCard with a specially crafted base64 field that causes a crash and may allow execution of arbitrary code.
Solution: Update to version 188.8.131.52.
