Two critical holes plugged in Thunderbird

Mozilla updates its e-mail client with a patch for two critical holes, as well as addressing memory leaks.

Mozilla pushed out an update to its e-mail client Thunderbird today. The 2.0.0.17 update, for both Windows and Mac versions, corrects two potential exploits. Centered around Newsgroup functionality and an obscure UTF-8 hyperlink spoof, they could've allowed an attacker to execute arbitrary code.

A spate of bug fixes, memory leaks, and other less severe tweaks were addressed, too. The full changelog can be read here.
