Security patch for Thunderbird

A security update for Mozilla Thunderbird gives the open-source email client a bit more protection from memory corruption, remote code execution, and spoofed certifications.

Mozilla has released an update for its open-source e-mail client, Thunderbird. Available for Windows, Mac, and Linux, none of the changes in version 2.0.0.16 are flagged as critical or high, but it's still a good idea to update. They address remote code execution, spoofed peer certifications, and crashes because of memory corruption.

There's been no new information on when Thunderbird 3 will be released, but if you want to try a buggy alpha version, Shredder is the Thunderbird 3 alpha release and is available.
