Details

Multiple memory safety 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.

Update instructions

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

Ubuntu 19.04
Ubuntu 18.10
Ubuntu 18.04
Ubuntu 16.04

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