In general, these flaws cannot be exploited through email in the Thunderbird product because scripting is disabled when reading mail, but are potentially risks in browser or browser-like contexts.
#CVE-2020-15652: Potential leak of redirect targets when loading scripts in a worker

Reporter
    Mikhail Oblozhikhin
Impact
    high

Description

By observing the stack trace for JavaScript errors in web workers, it was possible to leak the result of a cross-origin redirect. This applied only to content that can be parsed as script.

#CVE-2020-6514: WebRTC data channel leaks internal address to peer

Reporter
    Natalie Silvanovich of Google Project Zero
Impact
    high

Reporter
    Anne van Kesteren
Impact
    moderate

#CVE-2020-15656: Type confusion for special arguments in IonMonkey

Reporter
    Carl Smith, working with Google Project Zero
Impact

#CVE-2020-15658: Overriding file type when saving to disk

Reporter
    belden
Impact
    low

Description

The code for downloading files did not properly take care of special characters, which led to an attacker being able to cut off the file ending at an earlier position, leading to a different file type being downloaded than shown in the dialog.

#CVE-2020-15657: DLL hijacking due to incorrect loading path

Reporter
    Steve Nyan Lin
Impact
    low

Description

Firefox could be made to load attacker-supplied DLL files from the installation directory. This required an attacker that is already capable of placing files in the installation directory.
Note: This issue only affected Windows operating systems. Other operating systems are unaffected.

#CVE-2020-15654: Custom cursor can overlay user interface

Reporter
    SophosLabs Offensive Security team
Impact
    low

Description

When in an endless loop, a website specifying a custom cursor using CSS could make it look like the user is interacting with the user interface, when they are not. This could lead to a perceived broken state, especially when interactions with existing browser dialogs and warnings do not work.

#CVE-2020-15659: Memory safety bugs fixed in Thunderbird 78.1

Reporter
    Mozilla developers and community
Impact
    high

Description

Mozilla developers and community members Natalia Csoregi, Simon Giesecke, Jason Kratzer, Christian Holler, and Luke Wagner reported memory safety bugs present in Firefox 78 and Firefox ESR 78.0. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume that with enough effort some of these could have been exploited to run arbitrary code.
