A security issue affects the following Ubuntu releases:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS

Kubuntu, Edubuntu, and Xubuntu.

The problem can be corrected by upgrading your system to the
following package versions:

Ubuntu 6.06 LTS:
  mozilla-thunderbird             1.5.0.13-0ubuntu0.6.06

After a standard system upgrade you need to restart Thunderbird to effect
the necessary changes.

Details follow:

Various flaws were discovered in the layout and JavaScript engines. By
tricking a user into opening a malicious email, an attacker could execute
arbitrary code with the user's privileges. Please note that JavaScript
is disabled by default for emails, and it is not recommended to enable it.
(CVE-2007-3734, CVE-2007-3735, CVE-2007-3844)

Jesper Johansson discovered that spaces and double-quotes were
not correctly handled when launching external programs. In rare
configurations, after tricking a user into opening a malicious email,
an attacker could execute helpers with arbitrary arguments with the
user's privileges. (CVE-2007-3670, CVE-2007-3845)
