Ubuntu: New Thunderbird packages fix security vulnerabilities

It was discovered that several memory issues exist in the browser engine. An attacker could exploit these to crash the browser or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. Roberto Suggi Liverani discovered a possible issue with unsafe JavaScript execution in chrome documents. A malicious extension could exploit this to execute arbitrary code with chrome privlieges. Jordi Chancel discovered a buffer overlow in the JPEG decoding engine. An attacker could exploit this to crash the browser or possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program. Updated packages are available from security.ubuntu.com.
