Thunderbird 2.0.0.6 Released

Changelog for previous release (Thunderbird 2.0.0.5) | Changelogs for other Thunderbird releases

Make a donation to the upkeep of The Rumbling Edge.

Released on 01 Aug 07, and this changelog was last updated on 04 Aug 07.

Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0.0.6 has been released. Release notes are available. This post lists the improvements in Thunderbird 2.0.0.6 over 2.0.0.5. This list encompasses almost every single known fix that went into this release. Do check out the known issues as well.

The Gecko 1.8.x branch (Thunderbird 2.0.x series) will not include any groundbreaking features that Gecko 1.9 brings, since it is based on Gecko 1.8.

Impact key for security issues listed on the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories webpage:

  • Critical: Vulnerability can be used to run attacker code and install software, requiring no user interaction beyond normal browsing.
  • High: Vulnerability can be used to gather sensitive data from sites in other windows or inject data or code into those sites, requiring no more than normal browsing actions.
  • Moderate: Vulnerabilities that would otherwise be High or Critical except they only work in uncommon non-default configurations or require the user to perform complicated and/or unlikely steps.
  • Low: Minor security vulnerabilities such as Denial of Service attacks, minor data leaks, or spoofs. (Undetectable spoofs of SSL indicia would have “High” impact because those are generally used to steal sensitive data intended for other sites.)

Changes in 2.0.0.6: (3)

Security issues: (3)

  • Fixed: MFSA 2007-27 – Unescaped URIs passed to external programs (Critical)
  • Fixed: MFSA 2007-26 – Privilege escalation through chrome-loaded about:blank windows (Moderate)
  • Fixed: 389106 – firefox may not escape quotes everywhere
