Synopsis

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

Description

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.

Solution
