[slackware-security]  mozilla-thunderbird (SSA:2010-317-01)

New mozilla-thunderbird packages are available for Slackware 13.0,
13.1, and -current to fix security issues.


Here are the details from the Slackware 13.1 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-thunderbird-3.0.10-i686-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  This upgrade fixes some more security bugs.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/thunderbird30.html
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


As noted in the Slackware 13.0 ChangeLog, this is a major update there:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/mozilla-thunderbird-3.0.10-i686-1.txz:  Upgraded.
  With Thunderbird 2.x unmaintained, it seems like a good idea to provide a
  upgrade to Thunderbird 3.x for security reasons.  This will bring with it
  quite a bit of changed functionality, so be prepared...  one hint is that
  it will now make local copies of remote mailboxes by default, so you will
  need to have enough disk space to handle that.
  For more information, see:
    http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/thunderbird30.html
  (* Security fix *)
+--------------------------+


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

HINT:  Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try.  This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
directly from ftp.slackware.com.

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

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
