Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A
web page containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash
or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the
user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2015-7201, CVE-2015-7205,
CVE-2015-7212, CVE-2015-7213)

A flaw was found in the way Thunderbird handled content using the
'data:' and 'view-source:' URIs. An attacker could use this flaw to
bypass the same-origin policy and read data from cross-site URLs and
local files. (CVE-2015-7214)

After installing the update, Thunderbird must be restarted for the
changes to take effect.
