Description

Updated SeaMonkey packages that fix a security issues are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 2.1, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3 and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 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.

Multiple flaws were 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-2008-2801, CVE-2008-2802, CVE-2008-2803)

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 as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2008-2798, CVE-2008-2799, CVE-2008-2811)

Several flaws were found in the way malformed web content was displayed. A web page containing specially crafted content could potentially trick a SeaMonkey user into surrendering sensitive information. (CVE-2008-2800)

Two local file disclosure flaws were found in SeaMonkey. A web page containing malicious content could cause SeaMonkey to reveal the contents of a local file to a remote attacker. (CVE-2008-2805, CVE-2008-2810)

A flaw was found in the way a malformed .properties file was processed by SeaMonkey. A malicious extension could read uninitialized memory, possibly leaking sensitive data to the extension. (CVE-2008-2807)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey escaped a listing of local file names. If a user could be tricked into listing a local directory containing malicious file names, arbitrary JavaScript could be run with the permissions of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2008-2808)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed information about self-signed certificates. It was possible for a self-signed certificate to contain multiple alternate name entries, which were not all displayed to the user, allowing them to mistakenly extend trust to an unknown site. (CVE-2008-2809)

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