New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 1.1.19. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :
- The columns of a XUL tree element can be manipulated in a particular way that would leave a pointer owned by the column pointing to freed memory. (MFSA 2009-49)

- A heap-based buffer overflow exists in Mozilla's string to floating point number conversion routines. (MFSA 2009-59)

- It is possible to obfuscate the name of files to be downloaded by using a right-to-left override character (RTL). (MFSA 2009-62)

- Mozilla's NTLM implementation is vulnerable to reflection attacks in which NTLM credentials from one application could be forwarded to another arbitrary application. (MFSA 2009-68)

- Scriptable plugin content, such as Flash objects, can be loaded and executed by embedding the content in an iframe inside the message. (MFSA 2010-06)

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities exist that may result in the execution of arbitrary code. (MFSA 2010-07)

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.0.3 / 1.1.19 or later.

Note that 1.1.19 is a legacy release and is affected by known vulnerabilities.
