Mozilla’s e-mail client Thunderbird 60.5.2 has been pulled, due to a major bug in Windows. Here are a few details, what went downhill and what ‘has been pulled’ mean.

Considering the new TB has enough issues with a number of users here it cannot hurt to be careful nor to report things when you see them.

The test repo has just been updated with thunderbird-60.6.1

There were 2 critical security issues fixed in this release:
Security vulnerabilities fixed in Thunderbird 60.6.1

In general, these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird product because scripting is disabled when reading mail, but are potentially risks in browser or browser-like contexts.

#CVE-2019-9810: IonMonkey MArraySlice has incorrect alias information

Incorrect alias information in IonMonkey JIT compiler for Array.prototype.slice method may lead to missing bounds check and a buffer overflow.
References

Bug 1537924

#CVE-2019-9813: Ionmonkey type confusion with __proto__ mutations

Incorrect handling of __proto__ mutations may lead to type confusion in IonMonkey JIT code and can be leveraged for arbitrary memory read and write.
References

Bug 1538006
And finally, the release notes are here.

Please post any test results here.
