Detailed Explanation for this Vulnerability Assessment
The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-200606-21
(Mozilla Thunderbird: Multiple vulnerabilities)
Several vulnerabilities were found and fixed in Mozilla Thunderbird.

A remote attacker could craft malicious emails that would leverage
these issues to inject and execute arbitrary script code with elevated
rights, spoof content, and possibly execute arbitrary code with the
rights of the user running the application.
There are no known workarounds for all the issues at this time.
All Mozilla Thunderbird users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-188.8.131.52"
All Mozilla Thunderbird binary users should upgrade to the latest
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=mail-client/mozilla-thunderbird-bin-184.108.40.206"
