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

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 with the privileges of the
user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-1200)

A flaw was found in the way browser plug-ins interact. It was possible
for a plug-in to reference the freed memory from a different plug-in,
resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of
the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-1198)

An integer overflow flaw was 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-2010-1199)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey processed mail attachments. A
specially-crafted mail message could cause SeaMonkey to crash.
(CVE-2010-0163)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the
'Content-Disposition: attachment' HTTP header when the 'Content-Type:
multipart' HTTP header was also present. A website that allows
arbitrary uploads and relies on the 'Content-Disposition: attachment'
HTTP header to prevent content from being displayed inline, could be
used by an attacker to serve malicious content to users.
(CVE-2010-1197)

After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the
changes to take effect.
