SeaMonkey < 2.2.0 Multiple Vulnerabilities

high Nessus Plugin ID 55884


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


The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.2.0. As such, it is potentially affected by the following security issues :

- Errors in the WebGL implementation can allow the loading of WebGL textures from cross-domain images or allow the crash of the application and execution of arbitrary code. (CVE-2011-2366, CVE-2011-2368)

- An out-of-bounds read error exists in the WebGL implementation that can lead to crashes and may allow an attacker to read arbitrary data from the GPU, including that of other processes. (CVE-2011-2367)

- An error exists in the decoding of HTML-encoded entities contained in SVG elements. This error could lead to cross-site scripting attacks. (CVE-2011-2369)

- An unspecified error exists that allows non-whitelisted sites to trigger an install dialog for add-ons and themes. (CVE-2011-2370)

- When a JavaScript Array object has its length set to an extremely large value, the iteration of array elements that occurs when its reduceRight method is called could result in code execution due to an invalid index value being used. (CVE-2011-2371)

- A use-after-free error when viewing XUL documents with scripts disabled could lead to code execution.

- Multiple memory safety issues can lead to application crashes and possibly remote code execution.

- A memory corruption issue due to multipart / x-mixed-replace images could lead to memory corruption.


Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.2.0 or later.
