Oracle Linux 4 : seamonkey (ELSA-2011-1266)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2011:1266 :

Updated seamonkey packages that fix one security issue are now
available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having
important security impact.

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

The RHSA-2011:1244 SeaMonkey update rendered HTTPS certificates signed
by a certain Certificate Authority (CA) as untrusted, but made an
exception for a select few. This update removes that exception,
rendering every HTTPS certificate signed by that CA as untrusted.
(BZ#735483)

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.
