Synopsis :

The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by
multiple vulnerabilities.

Description :

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.3.0. Such
versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An error in SVG text manipulation code creates a
dangling pointer vulnerability. (CVE-2011-0084)

- Multiple, unspecified memory safety issues exist.
(CVE-2011-2985)

- An error in the D2D hardware acceleration code can allow
image data from one domain to be read by another domain.
(CVE-2011-2986)

- An error in the ANGLE library used by the WebGL
implementation can allow heap overflows, possibly
leading to code execution. (CVE-2011-2987)

- An error in the shader program handling code can allow
a large shader program to overflow a buffer and crash.
(CVE-2011-2988)

- An unspecified error exists related to WebGL.
(CVE-2011-2989)

- Two errors exist related to Content Security Policy
and can lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2011-2990)

- An unspecified error exists that can allow JavaScript
crashes. (CVE-2011-2991)

- An unspecified error exists that can allow the Ogg
reader to crash. (CVE-2011-2992)

- An unspecified error exists that can allow unsigned
JavaScript to call into a signed JAR and inherit the
signed JAR's permissions and identity. (CVE-2011-2993)

- There is an error in the implementation of the
'window.location' JavaScript object when creating named
frames. This can be exploited to bypass the same-origin
policy and potentially conduct cross-site scripting
attacks.(CVE-2011-2999)
