(CVE-2018-5150, CVE-2018-5154, CVE-2018-5155, CVE-2018-5159, CVE-2018-5168, CVE-2018-5178)

An issue was discovered when processing message headers in Thunderbird. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted message, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via application hang. (CVE-2018-5161)

It was discovered encrypted messages could leak plaintext via the src attribute of remote images or links. An attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2018-5162)
