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-2010-3767, CVE-2010-3772, CVE-2010-3776)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey loaded Java LiveConnect scripts.
Malicious web content could load a Java LiveConnect script in a way
that would result in the plug-in object having elevated privileges,
allowing it to execute Java code with the privileges of the user
running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-3775)

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