High Nessus Plugin ID 60194

Synopsis

The remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.

Description

Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain malformed JavaScript code. A web page containing malicious JavaScript code could cause SeaMonkey to crash or potentially execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2007-2867, CVE-2007-2868)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled certain FTP PASV commands. A malicious FTP server could use this flaw to perform a rudimentary port-scan of machines behind a user's firewall.
(CVE-2007-1562)

Several denial of service flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey handled certain form and cookie data. A malicious website that is able to set arbitrary form and cookie data could prevent SeaMonkey from functioning properly. (CVE-2007-1362, CVE-2007-2869)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain APOP authentication requests. By sending certain responses when SeaMonkey attempted to authenticate against an APOP server, a remote attacker could potentially acquire certain portions of a user's authentication credentials. (CVE-2007-1558)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the addEventListener JavaScript method. A malicious website could use this method to access or modify sensitive data from another website. (CVE-2007-2870)
