Scientific Linux Security Update : seamonkey on SL3.x, SL4.x i386/x86_64
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 60573
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionSeveral flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey.
A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey saved certain web pages to a local file. If a user saved the inner frame of a web page containing POST data, the POST data could be revealed to the inner frame, possibly surrendering sensitive information such as login credentials.
SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
