Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix a security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, and 4.
This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.
[Updated 16th July 2008] The original set of packages for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 were missing the seamonkey-nss and seamonkey-nspr packages. This errata was updated to add these missing packages.
