RHEL 3 : seamonkey (RHSA-2006:0608)

This script is Copyright (C) 2006-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description :

Updated seamonkey packages that fix several security bugs are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup
client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain
JavaScript actions. A malicious web page could execute arbitrary
JavaScript instructions with the permissions of 'chrome', allowing the
page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware.
(CVE-2006-3807, CVE-2006-3809, CVE-2006-3812)

Several denial of service flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey
processed certain web content. A malicious web page could crash the
browser or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running
SeaMonkey. (CVE-2006-3801, CVE-2006-3677, CVE-2006-3113,
CVE-2006-3803, CVE-2006-3805, CVE-2006-3806, CVE-2006-3811)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey Messenger
displayed malformed inline vcard attachments. If a victim viewed an
email message containing a carefully crafted vcard, it was possible to
execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey Messenger.
(CVE-2006-3804)

Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain
JavaScript actions. A malicious web page could conduct a cross-site
scripting attack or steal sensitive information (such as cookies owned
by other domains). (CVE-2006-3802, CVE-2006-3810)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey processed Proxy AutoConfig
scripts. A malicious Proxy AutoConfig server could execute arbitrary
JavaScript instructions with the permissions of 'chrome', allowing the
page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware.
(CVE-2006-3808)

Users of SeaMonkey are advised to upgrade to this update, which
contains SeaMonkey version 1.0.3 that corrects these issues.
