New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

The remote Red Hat host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having important 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.

A flaw was found in the way that SeaMonkey parsed malformed HTML mail messages. If a user opened a specially crafted HTML mail message, it could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, possibly, to execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2009-2210)

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this issue. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
