[slackware-security] thunderbird (SSA:2007-205-01)

New Thunderbird packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and 12.0 to fix two possible security issues. This package may also be used on many older versions of Slackware (though we're not certain how far back...)

More details about the issues may be found here:

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog: +--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-thunderbird-   Upgraded to thunderbird- Since Thunderbird shares the browser engine   with Firefox it is susceptible to similar vulnerabilities. This update fixes   the same issues fixed in the recent Firefox patch.   For more information, see:   (* Security fix *) +--------------------------+

Where to find the new packages: +-----------------------------+

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from Give a try. This is another primary FTP site for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading from

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab ( for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting to the Slackware project! :-)
