Mozilla Fixes Thunderbird Flaws In 1.0.5

The Mozilla Foundation updates its rival to Microsoft Outlook, the Thunderbird stand-alone POP3 e-mail and news client, to plug some security holes.

The Mozilla Foundation this week updated its rival to Microsoft Outlook, the Thunderbird stand-alone POP3 e-mail and news client, to plug some of the same security holes that earlier were fixed in the open-source group's popular Firefox browser.

Thunderbird 1.0.5, said Mozilla, is a "minor update" that fixes some security issues and improves the client's stability, but nevertheless should be downloaded and installed "by all users." According to the Mozilla's bug fix list, 1.0.5 patches nine vulnerabilities, all of which have already been added to < a href= "http://www.techweb.com/wire/software/165701816">Firefox.

Mozilla also skipped Thunderbird to 1.0.5 -- the previous version was 1.0.2 -- to make it match its moniker with Firefox.

Versions for Windows, Linux, and the Mac OS X can be downloaded from the Mozilla Web site.
