Synopsis :

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

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1163 :

Updated seamonkey packages that fix several security issues are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the
Red Hat Security Response Team.

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

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 as the user running SeaMonkey.
(CVE-2009-2462, CVE-2009-2463, CVE-2009-2466)

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which
correct these issues. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be
restarted for the changes to take effect.
