Fedora 7 : seamonkey-1.1.3-1.fc7 (2007-1181)

Synopsis :

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description :

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

Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain
malformed JavaScript code. A web page containing malicious JavaScript
code could cause SeaMonkey to crash or potentially execute arbitrary
code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2007-3734, CVE-2007-3735,
CVE-2007-3737, CVE-2007-3738)

Several content injection flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey
handled certain JavaScript code. A web page containing malicious
JavaScript code could inject arbitrary content into other web pages.
(CVE-2007-3736, CVE-2007-3089)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey cached web pages on the local
disk. A malicious web page may be able to inject arbitrary HTML into a
browsing session if the user reloads a targeted site. (CVE-2007-3656)

Users of SeaMonkey are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages,
which contain patches that correct these issues.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.
