Description

From Red Hat Security Advisory 2012:0141 :

Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix one security issue are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 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, e-mail and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

A heap-based buffer overflow flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled PNG (Portable Network Graphics) images. A web page containing a malicious PNG image could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, possibly, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-3026)

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

Update the affected seamonkey packages.
