Synopsis :

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

Description :

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.6.0. Such
versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An out-of-bounds memory access error exists in the
'SVG' implementation and can be triggered when 'SVG'
elements are removed during a 'DOMAttrModified' event
handler. (CVE-2011-3658)

- Various memory safety errors exist that can lead to
memory corruption and possible code execution.
(CVE-2011-3660)

- An error exists in the 'YARR' regular expression
library that can cause application crashes when
handling certain JavaScript statements. (CVE-2011-3661)

- It is possible to detect keystrokes using 'SVG'
animation 'accesskey' events even when JavaScript is
disabled. (CVE-2011-3663)

- It is possible to crash the application when 'OGG'
'video' elements are scaled to extreme sizes.
(CVE-2011-3665)

- A use-after-free error exists related to the function
'nsHTMLSelectElement' that can allow arbitrary code
execution during operations such as removal of a
parent node of an element. (CVE-2011-3671)
