Scientific Linux Security Update : seamonkey on SL3.x, SL4.x i386/x86_64

high Nessus Plugin ID 60879

Synopsis

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

Description

A race condition flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled Document Object Model (DOM) element properties. 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-2010-3765)

After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect

Note1: The Upstream Vendor has released this update. We feel that we should provide it to those few SL3 machines that are left. Note2: The Upstream Vendor ends support for their release in 3 days. So we expect this to be the last update for SL3.

Solution

Update the affected packages.
