Synopsis :

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

Description :

SeaMonkey is an open source web browser, email and newsgroup client,
IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey
handled certain multibyte character sets. A web page containing
malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to run JavaScript code with
the permissions of a different website. (CVE-2011-3648) All SeaMonkey
users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this
issue. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for
the changes to take effect.
