Gentoo Linux Security Advisory

Title: SeaMonkey: Multiple vulnerabilities (GLSA 200612-08)
Severity: high
Exploitable: remote
Date: December 10, 2006
Bug(s): #154449
ID: 200612-08

Synopsis

Multiple vulnerabilities have been identified in the SeaMonkey project.

Background

The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to deliver production-quality releases of code derived from the application formerly known as 'Mozilla Application Suite'.

Affected Packages

Package: www-client/seamonkey
Vulnerable: < 1.0.6
Unaffected: >= 1.0.6
Architectures: All supported architectures


Description

The SeaMonkey project is vulnerable to arbitrary JavaScript bytecode execution and arbitrary code execution.

Impact

An attacker could entice a user to load malicious JavaScript or a malicious web page with a SeaMonkey application and execute arbitrary code with the rights of the user running those products. It is important to note that in the SeaMonkey email client, JavaScript is disabled by default.

Workaround

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to the latest version:
Code:
# emerge --sync
# emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/seamonkey-1.0.6"
