The open-source Mozilla Foundation has released a security update to its Thunderbird e-mail client.

The open-source Mozilla Foundation has released a security update to its Thunderbird e-mail client.

Thunderbird version 1.0.7 fixes several security problems in the software, including a flaw that potentially allows a remote attacker to run malicious software on a user’s machine.

Thunderbird runs on Windows, Linux and Mac machines and is available separately from Mozilla’s open-source browser Firefox, which has many more users.

Firefox version 1.0.7 was also recently launched to deal with some of the problems addressed in the latest version of Thunderbird.

The Thunderbird update is available from www.mozilla.org
