openSUSE Security Update : seamonkey (seamonkey-4462)

Synopsis :

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description :

Mozilla SeaMonkey was updated to the 2.0.14 security release.

MFSA 2011-12: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory
safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other
Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory
corruption under certain circumstances, and we presume that with
enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run
arbitrary code. Credits
