Thunderbird 60.8: ten security fixes

Earlier this month Mozilla released a new version of its (still free, and still pretty good) email client, Thunderbird. The new version (60.8) includes fixes for ten security issues in earlier versions.

If you use Thunderbird, you can check which version you’re running by clicking its (‘hamburger’) menu button, and navigate to Help > About Mozilla Thunderbird. If a newer version is available, you should see a prompt to install it.

Jeff Rivett has worked with and written about computers since the early 1980s. His first computer was an Apple II+, built by his father and heavily customized. Jeff's writing appeared in Computist Magazine in the 1980s, and he created and sold a game utility (Ultimaker 2, reviewed in the December 1983 Washington Apple Pi Journal) to international markets during the same period. Proceeds from writing, software sales, and contract programming gigs paid his way through university, earning him a Bachelor of Science (Computer Science) degree at UWO. Jeff went on to work as a programmer, sysadmin, and manager in various industries. There's more on the About page, and on the Jeff Rivett Consulting site.
