Description

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.

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