Multiple security issues have been found in Thunderbird which could result in the setup of a non-encrypted IMAP connection, denial of service or potentially the execution of arbitrary code.

For Debian 8 Jessie, these problems have been fixed in version 1:68.9.0-1~deb8u2.

Note: 1:68.9.0esr-1~deb8u2 fixes an i386 build error in the otherwise identical 1:68.9.0esr-1~deb8u1 that was uploaded but not announced.

We recommend that you upgrade your thunderbird packages.
