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 cause SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-3767, CVE-2010-3772, CVE-2010-3776)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey loaded Java LiveConnect scripts. Malicious web content could load a Java LiveConnect script in a way that would result in the plug-in object having elevated privileges, allowing it to execute Java code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2010-3775)

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.
