The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.
SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup
client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.
By leveraging browser flaws, users could be fooled into possibly
surrendering sensitive information (CVE-2007-1095, CVE-2007-3511,
Malformed web content could result in the execution of arbitrary
commands (CVE-2007-5338, CVE-2007-5339, CVE-2007-5340).
Digest Authentication requests can be used to conduct a response
splitting attack (CVE-2007-2292).
The sftp protocol handler could be used to view the contents of
arbitrary local files (CVE-2007-5337).
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.
