Description

The installed version of Thunderbird 3.1.x is earlier than 3.1.14. Due to a recent attack against certificate authority DigiNotar, Mozilla has added explicit distrust to the DigiNotar root certificate and several intermediates in this version of Thunderbird.

Note this is a further fix to MFSA 2011-34, which removed the DigiNotar root certificate.
