Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing a security update.

Description :

Several flaws were found in the way Thunderbird processed certain
malformed JavaScript code. A malicious HTML email message containing
JavaScript code could cause Thunderbird to crash or potentially
execute arbitrary code as the user running Thunderbird. JavaScript
support is disabled by default in Thunderbird; these issues are not
exploitable unless the user has enabled JavaScript. (CVE-2007-3089,
