CentOS Errata and Security Advisory CESA-2011:1167

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

Several flaws were found in the processing of malformed web content. A web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-2982)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled malformed JavaScript. A web page containing malicious JavaScript could cause SeaMonkey to access already freed memory, causing SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-2983)

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to these updated packages, which correct these issues. After installing the update, SeaMonkey must be restarted for the changes to take effect.
