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 a 12-year browser line that went back to the original Netscape.
Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 repairs 15 vulnerabilities, two marked "critical" by Mozilla, one of which was also patched in Firefox 184.108.40.206 on April 14. An older edition of Thunderbird, version 1.0.8, was also patched to plug 17 security holes.
