Mozilla Corp. late Friday unveiled security fixes for its Thunderbird e-mail client to match patches rolled out for the Firefox browser a week before.
At the same time, the Mountain View, Calif. company also patched the Mozilla browser suite, then said the 1.7.13 version was the last it would produce, putting an end to Mozilla's development of an Internet suite that traces its roots back a dozen years to the original Netscape.
Thunderbird 184.108.40.206 repairs 15 vulnerabilities, two marked "critical" by Mozilla, one of which was also patched in Firefox 220.127.116.11 on April 14. An older edition of Thunderbird, version 1.0.8, was also patched to plug 17 security holes.
Mozilla also updated its same-named suite, which includes a browser, e-mail client, newsgroup reader, IRC client, and HTML editor, to version 1.7.13 by fixing 20 flaws, 12 of them critical.
Version 1.7.13 of the suite will be the final version from Mozilla, as per its "sunset" announcement a week ago when it said it would close the books on Mozilla, Firefox 1.0.x, and Thunderbird 1.0.x.
