SeaMonkey < 1.1.15 Multiple Vulnerabilities

High Nessus Plugin ID 35978


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


The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 1.1.15. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- There are several stability bugs in the browser engine that may lead to crashes with evidence of memory corruption. (MFSA 2009-01)

- Cookies marked HTTPOnly are readable by JavaScript via the 'XMLHttpRequest.getResponseHeader' and 'XMLHttpRequest.getAllResponseHeaders' APIs. (MFSA 2009-05)

- By exploiting stability bugs in the browser engine, it might be possible for an attacker to execute arbitrary code on the remote system under certain conditions. (MFSA 2009-07)

- It may be possible for a website to read arbitrary XML data from another domain by using nsIRDFService and a cross-domain redirect. (MFSA 2009-09)

- Vulnerabilities in the PNG libraries used by Mozilla could be exploited to execute arbitrary code on the remote system. (MFSA 2009-10)

- A URI spoofing vulnerability exists because the application fails to adequately handle specific characters in IDN subdomains. (MFSA 2009-15)


Upgrade to SeaMonkey 1.1.15 or later.
