This made the frontpage of the largest IT news site in Germany:

The biggest security threat these days is that people or vendors do not 
make updates. Many Thunderbird users are reluctant to make updates, 
because they fear regressions. I am scared that this message will 
reinforce the idea of users that updates are bad. It is this idea in the 
user's minds that causes the security disasters.
