Update Information:


A buffer overflow bug was found in the way Thunderbird processes GIF 
images. It is possible for an attacker to create a specially crafted GIF 
image, which when viewed by a victim will execute arbitrary code as the 
victim. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) 
has assigned the name CAN-2005-0399 to this issue.

A bug was found in the Thunderbird string handling functions. If a 
malicious website is able to exhaust a system's memory, it becomes 
possible to execute arbitrary code. The Common Vulnerabilities and 
Exposures project (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0255 to 
this issue.

Users of Thunderbird are advised to upgrade to this updated package 
which contains Thunderbird version 1.0.2 and is not vulnerable to these 
issues.

This update enables pango rendering by default.
