RHEL 3 / 4 : seamonkey (RHSA-2010:0810)

This script is Copyright (C) 2010-2014 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

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

Description :

Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
critical security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from
the CVE link in the References section.

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

A race condition flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled Document
Object Model (DOM) element properties. A web page containing malicious
content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey.

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct this issue. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.
