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-2009-1303, CVE-2009-1305)

Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was
processed. A web page containing malicious content could execute
arbitrary JavaScript in the context of the site, possibly presenting
misleading data to a user, or stealing sensitive information such as
login credentials. (CVE-2009-0652, CVE-2009-1306, CVE-2009-1307,
CVE-2009-1309, CVE-2009-1312)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey saved certain web pages to a
local file. If a user saved the inner frame of a web page containing
POST data, the POST data could be revealed to the inner frame,
possibly surrendering sensitive information such as login credentials.
(CVE-2009-1311)

SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
