high Nessus Plugin ID 31653
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

A web browser on the remote host is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.

Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is affected by various security issues :

- A series of vulnerabilities that allow for JavaScript privilege escalation and arbitrary code execution.

- Several stability bugs leading to crashes which, in some cases, show traces of memory corruption.

- An HTTP Referer spoofing issue with malformed URLs.

- A privacy issue with SSL client authentication.

- Web content fetched via the 'jar:' protocol can use Java via LiveConnect to open socket connections to arbitrary ports on the localhost.

- It is possible to have a background tab create a border-less XUL pop-up in front of the active tab in the user's browser.

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 1.1.9 or later.
