Description

There was an security issue with TBB’s native updater:

The Tor Project has fixed this in TBB version 4.5a3. (As per blog post.)

Forum discussion:

If 4.5a3 is the new stable at next Whonix release, then the patch mechanism to deactivate TBB’s internal updater (function tb_run_function tb_patch_internal_updater_disable_maybe) should be deactivated.
