Synopsis :

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

Description :

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-2008-0016, CVE-2008-4058, CVE-2008-4059, CVE-2008-4060,
CVE-2008-4061, CVE-2008-4062)

Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was
displayed. A web page containing specially crafted content could
potentially trick a SeaMonkey user into surrendering sensitive
information. (CVE-2008-3835, CVE-2008-4067, CVE-2008-4068,
CVE-2008-4069)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handles mouse click events. A
web page containing specially crafted JavaScript code could move the
content window while a mouse-button was pressed, causing any item
under the pointer to be dragged. This could, potentially, cause the
user to perform an unsafe drag-and-drop action. (CVE-2008-3837)

A flaw was found in SeaMonkey that caused certain characters to be
stripped from JavaScript code. This flaw could allow malicious
JavaScript to bypass or evade script filters. (CVE-2008-4065,
CVE-2008-4066)
