CentOS 3 / 4 : seamonkey (CESA-2008:0977)

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 36485

Synopsis

The remote CentOS host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey.
(CVE-2008-0017, CVE-2008-5013, CVE-2008-5014, CVE-2008-5016, CVE-2008-5017, CVE-2008-5018, CVE-2008-5019, CVE-2008-5021)

Several flaws were found in the way malformed content was processed. A web site containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a SeaMonkey user into surrendering sensitive information.
(CVE-2008-5012, CVE-2008-5022, CVE-2008-5023, CVE-2008-5024)

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