SeaMonkey < 2.26.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Critical Nessus Plugin ID 77283


The remote Windows host contains a web browser that is affected by multiple vulnerabilities.


The installed version of SeaMonkey is a version prior to 2.26.1. It is, therefore, affected by the following vulnerabilities :

- There are multiple memory safety bugs in the browser engine. Several of these bugs show evidence of memory corruption, which may allow an attacker to execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2014-1533, CVE-2014-1534)

- There are multiple use-after-free and out of bounds read issues. These issues have the potential to be exploited, resulting in remote code execution.
(CVE-2014-1536, CVE-2014-1537, CVE-2014-1538)

- A use-after-free error exists in the SMIL Animation Controller when interacting with and rendering improperly formed web content. This may result in a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2014-1541)

- A use-after-free flaw exists in the event listener manager that can be triggered by web content. This may result in a potentially exploitable crash.

- A flaw exists in the Speex resample in Web Audio that results in a buffer overflow when working with audio content that exceeds the expected bounds. This flaw results in a potentially exploitable crash.

- There exists a buffer overflow in the Gamepad API when it is exercised with a gamepad device with non-contiguous axes. This flaw results in a potentially exploitable crash. (CVE-2014-1543)


Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.26.1 or later.
