Description

New mozilla-thunderbird packages are available for Slackware 10.2, 11.0, 12.0, 12.1, 12.2, and -current to fix a security issue: "MFSA 2009-42 Compromise of SSL-protected communication"

More details about the issue may be found here:

http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/thunderbird20.html

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.2 ChangeLog:

patches/packages/mozilla-thunderbird-2.0.0.23-i686-1.tgz: This upgrade fixes a security bug. For more information, see: http://www.mozilla.org/security/known-vulnerabilities/thunderbird20.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.
