The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey creates temporary file names for
downloaded files. If a local attacker knows the name of a file
SeaMonkey is going to download, they can replace the contents of that
file with arbitrary contents. (CVE-2009-3274)
A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the SeaMonkey string to
floating point conversion routines. A web page containing malicious
code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey.
A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handles text selection. A
malicious website may be able to read highlighted text in a different
domain (e.g. another website the user is viewing), bypassing the
same-origin policy. (CVE-2009-3375)
A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displays a right-to-left
override character when downloading a file. In these cases, the name
displayed in the title bar differs from the name displayed in the
dialog body. An attacker could use this flaw to trick a user into
downloading a file that has a file name or extension that differs from
what the user expected. (CVE-2009-3376)
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 with the privileges of the
user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2009-3380)
After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the
changes to take effect.
