openSUSE Security Update : seamonkey (seamonkey-4462)

critical Nessus Plugin ID 76019

Synopsis

The remote openSUSE host is missing a security update.

Description

Mozilla SeaMonkey was updated to the 2.0.14 security release.

MFSA 2011-12: Mozilla developers identified and fixed several memory safety bugs in the browser engine used in Firefox and other Mozilla-based products. Some of these bugs showed evidence of memory corruption under certain circumstances, and we presume that with enough effort at least some of these could be exploited to run arbitrary code. Credits
