<define-tag moreinfo>
<p>Multiple security issues have been found in Thunderbird: Multiple memory
safety errors and use-after-frees may lead to the execution of arbitrary
code or denial of service.</p>
<p>Debian follows the Thunderbird upstream releases. Support for the 52.x
series has ended, so starting with this update we're now following the
60.x releases.</p>
<p>Between 52.x and 60.x, Thunderbird has undergone significant internal
updates, which makes it incompatible with a number of extensions. For
more information please refer to <a href="https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/new-thunderbird-60">\
https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/new-thunderbird-60</a></p>
<p>In addition, the new Thunderbird packages require Rust to build. A
compatible Rust toolchain has been backported to Debian stretch, but is
not available for all architectures which previously supported the
purely C++-based Thunderbird packages. Thus, the new Thunderbird packages
don't support the mips, mips64el and mipsel architectures at this point.</p>
<p>For the stable distribution (stretch), these problems have been fixed in
version 1:60.0-3~deb9u1.</p>
<p>We recommend that you upgrade your thunderbird packages.</p>
<p>For the detailed security status of thunderbird please refer to
its security tracker page at:
