Details

Updated thunderbird packages that address security issues, fix bugs, add
enhancements, and upgrade Thunderbird to version 10.0, are now available for Red
Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and 6.

Mozilla Thunderbird is a standalone mail and newsgroup client.

For technical details regarding these flaws, refer to the Mozilla security
advisories for Firefox 10.0. You can find a link to the Mozilla advisories in
the References section of this erratum.

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5, the thunderbird packages have been upgraded from
version 2.0.0.24 to version 10.0.1, which provides a number of bug fixes and
enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#789053)

For Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, the thunderbird packages have been upgraded from
version 3.1.18 to version 10.0.1, which provides a number of bug fixes and
enhancements over the previous version. (BZ#787125)

These updated thunderbird packages include numerous bug fixes and enhancements.
Space precludes documenting these changes in this advisory. For details
concerning these changes, refer to the Thunderbird release notes. A link to the
release notes index page is provided in the References section of this erratum.

Important: Thunderbird 10 is not completely backwards-compatible with all
Mozilla add-ons and Thunderbird plug-ins that worked with previous versions of
Thunderbird. Thunderbird 10 checks compatibility on first-launch, and, depending
on the individual configuration and the installed add-ons and plug-ins, may
disable said Add-ons and plug-ins, or attempt to check for updates and upgrade
them. Add-ons and plug-ins may have to be manually updated.

All Thunderbird users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain
Thunderbird version 10. After installing the update, Thunderbird must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.


Solution

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
