Synopsis :

The remote Mandrake Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A number of vulnerabilities have been discovered in the Mozilla
Thunderbird email client that could allow a remote attacker to craft
malicious web emails that could take advantage of these issues to
execute arbitrary code with elevated privileges, spoof content, and
steal local files, or other information. As well, some of these
vulnerabilities can be exploited to execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user running the program.
