(CVE-2008-0016, CVE-2008-4058, CVE-2008-4059, CVE-2008-4060, CVE-2008-4061, CVE-2008-4062)

Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was displayed. A web page containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a SeaMonkey user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-3835, CVE-2008-4067, CVE-2008-4068, CVE-2008-4069)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handles mouse click events. A web page containing specially crafted JavaScript code could move the content window while a mouse-button was pressed, causing any item under the pointer to be dragged. This could, potentially, cause the user to perform an unsafe drag-and-drop action. (CVE-2008-3837)

A flaw was found in SeaMonkey that caused certain characters to be stripped from JavaScript code. This flaw could allow malicious JavaScript to bypass or evade script filters. (CVE-2008-4065, CVE-2008-4066)

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
