Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

Various flaws have been reported that allow an attacker to execute
arbitrary code with user privileges by tricking the user into opening
a malicious email containing JavaScript. Please note that JavaScript
is disabled by default for emails, and it is not recommended to enable
it. (CVE-2006-3113, CVE-2006-3802, CVE-2006-3803, CVE-2006-3805,
CVE-2006-3806, CVE-2006-3807, CVE-2006-3809, CVE-2006-3810,
CVE-2006-3811, CVE-2006-3812)

A buffer overflow has been discovered in the handling of .vcard files.
By tricking a user into importing a malicious vcard into his contacts,
this could be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the user's
privileges. (CVE-2006-3084)

The 'enigmail' plugin has been updated to work with the new
Thunderbird version.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Update the affected packages.
