Mozilla Thunderbird < 6.0.1 Out-of-Date CA List

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 56040


The remote Windows host contains a mail client that may be affected by an out-of-date certificate authority list.


The installed version of Thunderbird is earlier than 6.0.1 and thus, is potentially affected by an out-of-date certificate authority list.
Due to the issuance of several fraudulent SSL certificates, the certificate authority DigiNotar has been disabled in Mozilla Thunderbird.


Upgrade to Thunderbird 6.0.1 or later.
