New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

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 :

- Using a specially crafted UTF-8 URL in a hyperlink, an attacker might be able to exploit a stack buffer overflow in the Mozilla URL parsing routes to execute arbitrary code. (MFSA 2008-37)

- It is possible to bypass the same-origin check in 'nsXMLDocument::OnChannelRedirect()'. (MFSA 2008-38)

- An attacker can cause the content window to move while the mouse is being clicked, causing an item to be dragged rather than clicked-on. (MFSA 2008-40)

- Privilege escalation is possible via 'XPCnativeWrapper' pollution. (MFSA 2008-41)

- There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that may lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2008-42)

- Certain BOM characters and low surrogate characters, if HTML-escaped, are stripped from JavaScript code before it is executed, which could allow for cross- site scripting attacks. (MFSA 2008-43)

- The 'resource:' protocol allows directory traversal on Linux when using URL-encoded slashes, and it can by used to bypass restrictions on local HTML files.
(MFSA 2008-44)

- A bug in the XBM decoder allows random small chunks of uninitialized memory to be read. (MFSA 2008-45)

- There is a heap-based buffer overflow that can be triggered when canceling a newsgroup message.
(MFSA 2008-46)

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 1.1.12 or later.
