Debian DLA-1223-1 : thunderbird security update

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 105465

Synopsis

The remote Debian host is missing a security update.

Description

Multiple security issues have been found in the Mozilla Thunderbird mail client including information leaks, unintended JavaScript execution and sender address spoofing.

For Debian 7 'Wheezy', these problems have been fixed in version 1:52.5.2-1~deb7u1.

We recommend that you upgrade your thunderbird packages.

NOTE: Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the DLA security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.

Solution

Upgrade the affected packages.
