Fedora 16 : thunderbird-13.0-1.fc16 / thunderbird-lightning-1.5-2.fc16 (2012-9037)

High Nessus Plugin ID 59688


The remote Fedora host is missing one or more security updates.


What is new :

- Filelink: Upload your files to an online storage service and send links to your friends, avoiding bounce back due to large attachments. We have partnered with YouSendIt to bring this feature, but additional partners will be added in the near future.

- In partnership with Gandi and Hover, you can now sign up for a personalized email address from within Thunderbird. Along with your new email address, Thunderbird will be automatically set up and ready to send and receive messages. We are working with additional suppliers to cover more areas of the world and to provide more options in the future.

What is fixed :

- Various security fixes

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


Update the affected thunderbird and / or thunderbird-lightning packages.
