#CVE-2018-18509: S/MIME signature spoofing

Reporter
    Damian Poddebniak
Impact
    high

Description

A flaw during verification of certain S/MIME signatures causes emails to be shown in Thunderbird as having a valid digital signature, even if the shown message contents aren't covered by the signature. The flaw allows an attacker to reuse a valid S/MIME signature to craft an email message with arbitrary content.
