Description

This update upgrades Thunderbird to version 45.5.0

Security Fix(es) :

  • Multiple flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause Thunderbird to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running Thunderbird. (CVE-2016-5290)
