CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2008:0223-02

SeaMonkey is an open source Web browser, advanced email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor.

A flaw was found in the processing of malformed JavaScript content. A web page containing such malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2008-1380)

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which contain backported patches to resolve these issues.
