SeaMonkey < 2.0.1 Multiple Vulnerabilities

medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5265
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The remote host has a web browser installed that is affected by multiple attack vectors.


The remote host is running a version of SeaMonkey earlier than 2.0.1. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- Multiple crashes that could result in arbitrary code execution. (MFSA 2009-65)

- Multiple vulnerabilities in 'liboggplay' which could lead to arbitrary code execution. Note that this only affects the 3.5.x branch. (MFSA 2009-66)

- An integer overflow in the 'Theora' video library which could lead to a crash or the execution of arbitrary code. Note that this only affects the 3.5.x branch. (MFSA 2009-67)

- The NTML implementation is vulnerable to reflection attacks in which NTML credentials from one application could be forwarded to another application. (MFSA 2009-68)

- Multiple location bar spoofing vulnerabilities. (MFSA 2009-69)

- A content window which is opened by a chrome window retains a reference to the chrome window via the 'window.opener' property which could lead to a privilege escalation. (MFSA 2009-70)

- The exception messages generated by the 'GeckoActiveXObject' differ based on whether or not the requested COM object's ProgID is present in the system registry. (MFSA 2009-71)


Upgrade to SeaMonkey 2.0.1 or later.
