Risk 4 : Red Hat Local Checks

Updated seamonkey packages that fix several security bugs are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

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.

Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain javascript actions. A malicious web page could execute arbitrary javascript instructions with the permissions of "chrome", allowing the page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware. (CVE-2006-3807, CVE-2006-3809, CVE-2006-3812)

Several denial of service flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain web content. A malicious web page could crash the browser or possibly execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey. (CVE-2006-3801, CVE-2006-3677, CVE-2006-3113, CVE-2006-3803, CVE-2006-3805, CVE-2006-3806, CVE-2006-3811)

A buffer overflow flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey Messenger displayed malformed inline vcard attachments. If a victim viewed an email message containing a carefully crafted vcard, it was possible to execute arbitrary code as the user running SeaMonkey Messenger. (CVE-2006-3804)

Several flaws were found in the way SeaMonkey processed certain javascript actions. A malicious web page could conduct a cross-site scripting attack or steal sensitive information (such as cookies owned by other domains). (CVE-2006-3802, CVE-2006-3810)

A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey processed Proxy AutoConfig scripts. A malicious Proxy AutoConfig server could execute arbitrary javascript instructions with the permissions of "chrome", allowing the page to steal sensitive information or install browser malware. (CVE-2006-3808)

Users of SeaMonkey are advised to upgrade to this update, which contains SeaMonkey version 1.0.3 that corrects these issues.
