Description

The installed version of SeaMonkey is earlier than 2.16.1 and thus, is potentially affected by a use-after-free vulnerability.

An error exists in the HTML editor (nsHTMLEditor) related to content script and the calling of the function 'document.execCommand' while internal editor operations are running. The previously freed memory can be dereferenced and could lead to arbitrary code execution.
