Description

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 possibly lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-0080)

An arbitrary memory write flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled out-of-memory conditions. If all memory was consumed when a user visited a malicious web page, it could possibly lead to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-0078)

An integer overflow flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the HTML frameset tag. A web page with a frameset tag containing large values for the 'rows' and 'cols' attributes could trigger this flaw, possibly leading to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-0077)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the HTML iframe tag. A web page with an iframe tag containing a specially crafted source address could trigger this flaw, possibly leading to arbitrary code execution with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-0075)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey displayed multiple marquee elements. A malformed HTML document could cause SeaMonkey to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-0074)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled the nsTreeSelection element. Malformed content could cause SeaMonkey to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-0073)

A use-after-free flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey appended frame and iframe elements to a DOM tree when the NoScript add-on was enabled. Malicious HTML content could cause SeaMonkey to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2011-0072)

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.
