[Updated 12 March 2007] Packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1 and 3 have been updated to correct an issue which prevented Evolution and other applications linked against the NSS library from functioning.

SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain malformed JavaScript code. A malicious web page could execute JavaScript code in such a way that may result in SeaMonkey crashing or executing arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey.
(CVE-2007-0775, CVE-2007-0777)

Several cross-site scripting (XSS) flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain malformed web pages. A malicious web page could display misleading information which may result in a user unknowingly divulging sensitive information such as a password.
(CVE-2006-6077, CVE-2007-0995, CVE-2007-0996)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey cached web pages on the local disk. A malicious web page may be able to inject arbitrary HTML into a browsing session if the user reloads a targeted site. (CVE-2007-0778)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed certain web content. A malicious web page could generate content which could overlay user interface elements such as the hostname and security indicators, tricking a user into thinking they are visiting a different site.
(CVE-2007-0779)

Two flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey displayed blocked popup windows. If a user can be convinced to open a blocked popup, it is possible to read arbitrary local files, or conduct an XSS attack against the user. (CVE-2007-0780, CVE-2007-0800)

Two buffer overflow flaws were found in the Network Security Services (NSS) code for processing the SSLv2 protocol. Connecting to a malicious secure web server could cause the execution of arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2007-0008, CVE-2007-0009)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the 'location.hostname' value during certain browser domain checks. This flaw could allow a malicious web site to set domain cookies for an arbitrary site, or possibly perform an XSS attack. (CVE-2007-0981)

Users of SeaMonkey are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain SeaMonkey version 1.0.8 that corrects these issues.

Solution

Update the affected seamonkey packages.
