Synopsis :

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

Description :

Several flaws were discovered in the browser engine of Thunderbird. If
a user were tricked into viewing malicious content, a remote attacker
could use this to crash Thunderbird or possibly run arbitrary code as
the user invoking the program. (CVE-2010-1211, CVE-2010-1212)

An integer overflow was discovered in how Thunderbird processed CSS
values. An attacker could exploit this to crash Thunderbird or
possibly run arbitrary code as the user invoking the program.
(CVE-2010-2752)

An integer overflow was discovered in how Thunderbird interpreted the

Aki Helin discovered that libpng did not properly handle certain
malformed PNG images. If a user were tricked into opening a crafted

execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the
program. (CVE-2010-1205)

Yosuke Hasegawa discovered that the same-origin check in Thunderbird
could be bypassed by utilizing the importScripts Web Worker method. If
