Description


Some vulnerabilities have been reported in Mozilla SeaMonkey, which can be exploited by malicious people to disclose sensitive information or potentially compromise a user's system.

2) An error when joined to an Active Directory server on Vista or Windows 7 can be exploited to cause a crash or potentially execute arbitrary code if SSPI authentication is used.

3) An error when indexing certain messages with attachments can be exploited to cause a crash or potentially execute arbitrary code.

4) An unspecified error in the JavaScript engine can be exploited to cause a crash or potentially execute arbitrary code.

5) An error in the BinHex decoder when used on non-Mac platforms can be exploited to cause a crash or potentially execute arbitrary code.

Vulnerabilities #4 and #5 are related to vulnerability #1 in:

7) A use-after-free error in the implementation of the XUL tree element can be exploited to potentially execute arbitrary code.

This is related to vulnerability #3 in:

8) An error in the implementation of the NTLM authentication protocol can be exploited to reflect the user's NTLM credentials to an arbitrary application.

This is related to vulnerability #5 in:

Last edited on 19th Mar, 2010 15:27 It would be much better to upgrade to Mozilla Seamonkey 2.0.3 (the latest of the 2.x series, which replaces 1.x)

1) It is developped with exactly the same tools as Mozilla Firefox, so for example, it can use the same versions of supplementary modules as Firefox.

2) Because of (1), it is more quickly corrected than 1.x. (2.0.3 appeared a few weeks ago.)

3) 2.x contains a lot of (relatively small but) very interesting enhancements compared to 1.x

4) 2.x is more compact AND faster than 1.x
