Synopsis :

The remote Mac OS X host contains an email client that is potentially
affected by an integer overflow vulnerability.

Description :

The installed version of Thunderbird 3.1.x is earlier than 3.1.19 and
is, therefore, potentially affected by an integer overflow
vulnerability in libpng, a library used by this application. When
decompressing certain PNG image files, this could be exploited to
crash the application or even execute arbitrary code.
