Description

Details for this vulnerability have not been published by NIST at this point. Descriptions from software vendor advisories for this issue are provided below.

From USN-5393-1:

Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user were tricked into opening a specially crafted website in a browsing context, an attacker could potentially exploit these to cause a denial of service, conduct spoofing attacks, or execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2022-1097, CVE-2022-1196,CVE-2022-28281,CVE-2022-28282,CVE-2022-28285, CVE-2022-28286,CVE-2022-28289)

It was discovered that Thunderbird ignored OpenPGP revocation when importing a revoked key in some circumstances. An attacker could potentially exploit this by tricking the user into trusting the authenticity of a message or tricking them into use a revoked key to send an encrypted message. (CVE-2022-1197)
