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

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security
updates.

Description :

A race condition flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled Document
Object Model (DOM) element properties. 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-2010-3765)

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

Note1: The Upstream Vendor has released this update. We feel that we
should provide it to those few SL3 machines that are left. Note2: The
Upstream Vendor ends support for their release in 3 days. So we expect
this to be the last update for SL3.
