High Nessus Plugin ID 43175


The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.0.1. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Multiple crashes can result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-65)

- Multiple vulnerabilities in 'liboggplay' can lead to arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-66)

- An integer overflow in the 'Theora' video library can lead to a crash or the execution of arbitrary code.
(MFSA 2009-67)

- The NTLM implementation is vulnerable to reflection attacks in which NTLM credentials from one application can be forwarded to another application. (MFSA 2009-68)

- Multiple location bar spoofing vulnerabilities exist.
(MFSA 2009-69)

- A content window which is opened by a chrome window retains a reference to the chrome window via the 'window.opener' property, which can lead to privilege escalation. (MFSA 2009-70)

- The exception messages generated by the 'GeckoActiveXObject' differ based on whether or not the requested COM object's ProgID is present in the system registry. (MFSA 2009-71)


Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.0.1 or later.
