Details

Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user were
tricked into opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an
attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service,
spoof the mouse pointer position, obtain sensitive information, spoof the
contents of the addressbar, bypass security restrictions, or execute
arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-2505, CVE-2022-36318, CVE-2022-36319,
CVE-2022-38472, CVE-2022-38473, CVE-2022-38476 CVE-2022-38477,
CVE-2022-38478)

Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. An attacker could
potentially exploit these in order to determine when a user opens a
specially crafted message. (CVE-2022-3032, CVE-2022-3034)

It was discovered that Thunderbird did not correctly handle HTML messages
that contain a meta tag in some circumstances. If a user were tricked into
replying to a specially crafted message, an attacker could potentially
exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2022-3033)

A security issue was discovered with the Matrix SDK in Thunderbird. An
attacker sharing a room with a user could potentially exploit this to
cause a denial of service. (CVE-2022-36059)
