Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain
malformed JavaScript code. A web page containing malicious JavaScript
code could cause SeaMonkey to crash or potentially execute arbitrary
code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2007-2867, CVE-2007-2868)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled certain FTP PASV
commands. A malicious FTP server could use this flaw to perform a
rudimentary port-scan of machines behind a user's firewall.
(CVE-2007-1562)

Several denial of service flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey
handled certain form and cookie data. A malicious website that is able
to set arbitrary form and cookie data could prevent SeaMonkey from
functioning properly. (CVE-2007-1362, CVE-2007-2869)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain APOP
authentication requests. By sending certain responses when SeaMonkey
attempted to authenticate against an APOP server, a remote attacker
could potentially acquire certain portions of a user's authentication
credentials. (CVE-2007-1558)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the addEventListener
JavaScript method. A malicious website could use this method to access
or modify sensitive data from another website. (CVE-2007-2870)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed certain web content. A
malicious web page could generate content that would overlay user
interface elements such as the hostname and security indicators,
tricking users into thinking they are visiting a different site.
(CVE-2007-2871)
