Scientific Linux Security Update : seamonkey on SL4.x, SL3.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

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

Description :

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)
