The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.
Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.
This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.
SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, email and newsgroup client,
IRC chat client, and HTML editor.
Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A
web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash
or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey.
(CVE-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1833, CVE-2009-1838, CVE-2009-1841)
A flaw was found in the processing of malformed, local file content.
If a user loaded malicious, local content via the file:// URL, it was
possible for that content to access other local data. (CVE-2009-1835)
All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.
