SeaMonkey < 1.1.19 Multiple Vulnerabilities

Medium Nessus Network Monitor Plugin ID 5479

Synopsis

The remote host is running a web browser that is vulnerable to multiple attack vectors.

Description

The remote host is running a version of SeaMonkey earlier than 1.1.19. Such versions are potentially affected by multiple vulnerabilities :

- The columns of a XUL tree element could be manipulated in a particular way which would leave a pointer owned by the column pointing to freed memory. (MFSA 2009-49)

- A heap-based overflow exists in Mozilla's string to floating point number conversion routines. (MFSA 2009-59)

- It is possible to obfuscate the name of files to be downloaded by using a right-to-left override character (RTL). (MFSA 2009-62)

- Mozilla's NTLM implementation is vulnerable to reflection attacks in which NTLM credentials from one application could be forwarded to another arbitrary application. (MFSA 2009-68)

- Scriptable plugin content, such as Flash objects, can be loaded and executed by embedding the content in an iframe inside the message. (MFSA 2010-06)

- Multiple memory corruption vulnerabilities which could potentially lead to the execution of arbitrary code. (MFSA 2010-07)

Solution

Upgrade to SeaMonkey 1.1.19 or later.
