Synopsis

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

Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.3.0. Such versions are potentially affected by the following security issues :

- An error in SVG text manipulation code creates a dangling pointer vulnerability. (CVE-2011-0084)

- Multiple, unspecified memory safety issues exist.
(CVE-2011-2985)

- An error in the D2D hardware acceleration code can allow image data from one domain to be read by another domain.
(CVE-2011-2986)

- An error in the ANGLE library used by the WebGL implementation can allow heap overflows, possibly leading to code execution. (CVE-2011-2987)

- An error in the shader program handling code can allow a large shader program to overflow a buffer and crash.
(CVE-2011-2988)

- An unspecified error exists related to WebGL. (CVE-2011-2989)

- Two errors exist related to Content Security Policy and can lead to information disclosure. (CVE-2011-2990)

- An unspecified error exists that can allow JavaScript crashes. (CVE-2011-2991)

- An unspecified error exists that can allow the Ogg reader to crash. (CVE-2011-2992)

- An unspecified error exists that can allow unsigned JavaScript to call into a signed JAR and inherit the signed JAR's permissions and identity. (CVE-2011-2993)

- There is an error in the implementation of the 'window.location' JavaScript object when creating named frames. This can be exploited to bypass the same-origin policy and potentially conduct cross-site scripting attacks.(CVE-2011-2999)
