Mozilla Thunderbird 3.1 < 3.1.9 Invalid HTTP Certificates

This script is Copyright (C) 2011-2017 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a mail client with an out-of-date
SSL certificate blacklist.

Description :

The installed version of Thunderbird 3.1 is earlier than 3.1.9. Such
versions have an out-of-date SSL certificate blacklist.

A certificate authority (CA) has revoked a number of fraudulent SSL
certificates for several prominent public websites.

If an attacker can trick someone into using the affected browser and
visiting a malicious site using one of the fraudulent certificates, he
may be able to fool that user into believing the site is a legitimate
one. In turn, the user could send credentials to the malicious site
or download and install applications.
