Scientific Linux Security Update : seamonkey on SL3.x, SL4.x i386/x86_64

This script is Copyright (C) 2012-2013 Tenable Network Security, Inc.

Synopsis :

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security

Description :

A race condition flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled Document
Object Model (DOM) element properties. A web page containing malicious
content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute
arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey.

After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the
changes to take effect

Note1: The Upstream Vendor has released this update. We feel that we
should provide it to those few SL3 machines that are left. Note2: The
Upstream Vendor ends support for their release in 3 days. So we expect
this to be the last update for SL3.
