Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 1.1.18. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- The browser can be fooled into trusting a malicious SSL server certificate with a null character in the host name.
(MFSA 2009-42)

- A heap overflow in the code that handles regular expressions in certificate names can lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-43)

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 1.1.18 or later.
