high Nessus Plugin ID 60820
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

Synopsis

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

Description

Several 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 with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-1211, CVE-2010-2753, CVE-2010-1214)

A memory corruption flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey decoded certain PNG images. An attacker could create a specially crafted PNG image that, when opened, could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-1205)

A same-origin policy bypass flaw was found in SeaMonkey. An attacker could create a malicious web page that, when viewed by a victim, could steal private data from a different website the victim has loaded with SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-2754)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed the location bar when visiting a secure web page. A malicious server could use this flaw to present data that appears to originate from a secure server, even though it does not. (CVE-2010-2751)

SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
