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

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 61172


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


SeaMonkey is an open source web browser, email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

A cross-site scripting (XSS) flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled certain multibyte character sets. A web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to run JavaScript code with the permissions of a different website. (CVE-2011-3648) All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct this issue. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.


Update the affected packages.
