Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

This update brings Mozilla Thunderbird to version It
contains stability fixes and some security fixes :

- MFSA 2007-01: As part of the Thunderbird update
releases several bugs were fixed to improve the
stability of the browser. Some of these were crashes
that showed evidence of memory corruption and we presume
that with enough effort at least some of these could be
exploited to run arbitrary code. These fixes affected
the layout engine (CVE-2007-0775), SVG renderer
(CVE-2007-0776) and JavaScript engine (CVE-2007-0777).

- MFSA 2007-06: CVE-2007-0008: SSL clients such as Firefox
and Thunderbird can suffer a buffer overflow if a
malicious server presents a certificate with a public
key that is too small to encrypt the entire 'Master
Secret'. Exploiting this overflow appears to be
unreliable but possible if the SSLv2 protocol is
