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-2010-1211, CVE-2010-2753, CVE-2010-1214)

A memory corruption flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey decoded
certain PNG images. An attacker could create a specially-crafted PNG
image that, when opened, could cause SeaMonkey to crash or,
potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-1205)

A same-origin policy bypass flaw was found in SeaMonkey. An attacker
could create a malicious web page that, when viewed by a victim, could
steal private data from a different website the victim has loaded with
SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-2754)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed the location bar when
visiting a secure web page. A malicious server could use this flaw to
present data that appears to originate from a secure server, even
though it does not. (CVE-2010-2751)

SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
