Thunderbird 3.1.5 Release with Critical security fixes

Mozilla Thunderbird 3.1.5 version released today. This free and open source email client is one of the better standalone ones available. Since development is done by a community of developers with the help of security experts; issue identification and resolution process is so efficient. Thunderbird 3.1.5 can be downloaded from here for any platform (Windows, Mac OS and Linux) in around fifty languages.

This release has fixes for five critical security vulnerabilities as shown below.
  • Unsafe library loading Vulnerabilities
  • Dangling pointer vulnerability in LookupGetterOrSetter
  • Use-after-free error in nsBarProp
  • Buffer overflow and memory corruption using document.write
  • Miscellaneous memory safety hazards (rv:1.9.2.11/ 1.9.1.14)

An upgrade to latest 3.1.5 version is advised to avoid any security issues. All credit goes to those great people who devote their time and effort on getting another release out.
