A cross-site scripting flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the
jar: URI scheme. It was possible for a malicious website to leverage
this flaw and conduct a cross-site scripting attack against a user
running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2007-5947)
Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain
malformed web content. A webpage containing malicious content could
cause SeaMonkey to crash, or potentially execute arbitrary code as the
user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2007-5959)
A race condition existed when SeaMonkey set the 'window.location'
property for a webpage. This flaw could allow a webpage to set an
arbitrary Referer header, which may lead to a Cross-site Request
Forgery (CSRF) attack against websites that rely only on the Referer
header for protection. (CVE-2007-5960)
