Scientific Linux Security Update : seamonkey on SL3.x, SL4.x i386/x86_64
High Nessus Plugin ID 60879
SynopsisThe remote Scientific Linux host is missing one or more security updates.
DescriptionA 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.
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected packages.
