Description

Updated seamonkey packages that fix several security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, 3, and 4. This update has been rated as having critical security impact by the Red Hat Security Response Team.

SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. Several flaws were found in the processing of some malformed web content. A web page containing such malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2008-1233, CVE-2008-1235, CVE-2008-1236, CVE-2008-1237) Several flaws were found in the display of malformed web content. A web page containing specially-crafted content could, potentially, trick a SeaMonkey user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-1234, CVE-2008-1238, CVE-2008-1241) All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
