Synopsis :

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

Description :

Jesse Ruderman, Andreas Gal, Nils, Brian Hackett, and Igor Bukanov
discovered several memory issues in the browser engine. An attacker
could exploit these to crash THunderbird or possibly run arbitrary
code as the user invoking the program. (CVE-2010-3776, CVE-2010-3777,
CVE-2010-3778)

Marc Schoenefeld and Christoph Diehl discovered several problems when
handling downloadable fonts. The new OTS font sanitizing library was
added to mitigate these issues. (CVE-2010-3768).

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.

Solution :

Update the affected packages.
