SynopsisThe remote Fedora Core host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionUpdated seamonkey packages that fix several security bugs are now available for Fedora Core 5.
This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Fedora Security Response Team.
SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.
A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled certain FTP PASV commands. A malicious FTP server could use this flaw to perform a rudimentary port-scan of machines behind a user's firewall.
Several denial of service flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey handled certain form and cookie data. A malicious website that is able to set arbitrary form and cookie data could prevent SeaMonkey from functioning properly. (CVE-2007-1362, CVE-2007-2869)
A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain APOP authentication requests. By sending certain responses when SeaMonkey attempted to authenticate against an APOP server, a remote attacker could potentially acquire certain portions of a user's authentication credentials. (CVE-2007-1558)
A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed certain web content. A malicious web page could generate content that would overlay user interface elements such as the hostname and security indicators, tricking users into thinking they are visiting a different site.
Users of SeaMonkey are advised to upgrade to these erratum packages, which contain SeaMonkey version 1.0.9 that corrects these issues.
Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding description block directly from the Fedora security advisory. Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible without introducing additional issues.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
