Oracle Linux 3 / 4 : seamonkey (ELSA-2009-1096)

High Nessus Plugin ID 67870

Synopsis

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

Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2009:1096 :

Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.

This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

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

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey.
(CVE-2009-1392, CVE-2009-1833, CVE-2009-1838, CVE-2009-1841)

A flaw was found in the processing of malformed, local file content.
If a user loaded malicious, local content via the file:// URL, it was possible for that content to access other local data. (CVE-2009-1835)

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.

Solution

Update the affected seamonkey packages.
