The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
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-2009-3979)
A flaw was found in the SeaMonkey NT Lan Manager (NTLM) authentication
protocol implementation. If an attacker could trick a local user that
has NTLM credentials into visiting a specially crafted web page, they
could send arbitrary requests, authenticated with the user's NTLM
credentials, to other applications on the user's system.
A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed the SSL location bar
indicator. An attacker could create an unencrypted web page that
appears to be encrypted, possibly tricking the user into believing
they are visiting a secure page. (CVE-2009-3984)
After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the
changes to take effect.
