DescriptionFrom Red Hat Security Advisory 2010:0810 :
Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and 4.
The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical security impact. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, which gives a detailed severity rating, is available from the CVE link in the References section.
SeaMonkey is an open source web browser, email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.
A 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.
