Original advisory details:

It was discovered that a specially crafted S/MIME message with an inner

circumstances, even if the signer had no access to the encrypted message.
An attacker could potentially exploit this to spoof the message author.
(CVE-2019-11755)

Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user were
tricked in to opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context,
an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service,
bypass security restrictions, bypass same-origin restrictions, conduct
cross-site scripting (XSS) attacks, or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2019-11757, CVE-2019-11758, CVE-2019-11759, CVE-2019-11760,
