Synopsis :

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

Description :

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2012:0141 :

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
critical security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from
the CVE link in the References section.

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

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey
handled PNG (Portable Network Graphics) images. A web page containing
a malicious PNG image could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, possibly,
execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running
SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-3026)

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.
