A vulnerability has been discovered in Mozilla SeaMonkey, which can be exploited by malicious people to compromise a user's system.
The vulnerability is caused due to the application loading libraries (e.g. dwmapi.dll) in an insecure manner. This can be exploited to load arbitrary libraries by tricking a user into e.g. opening an HTML file located on a remote WebDAV or SMB share.
Successful exploitation allows execution of arbitrary code.
The vulnerability is confirmed in version 2.0.6 on a Windows system. Other versions may also be affected.
Solution: Update to version 2.0.7.
