Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

Multiple security issues were discovered in Thunderbird. If a user
were tricked into connecting to a malicious server, an attacker could
possibly exploit these to cause a denial of service via application
crash, potentially execute arbitrary code, or lead to information
disclosure. (CVE-2013-1741, CVE-2013-2566, CVE-2013-5605,
CVE-2013-5607).

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 thunderbird package.
