                   Red Hat Security Advisory

Synopsis:          Critical: seamonkey security update
Advisory ID:       RHSA-2012:0084-01
Product:           Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Advisory URL:      https://rhn.redhat.com/errata/RHSA-2012-0084.html
Issue date:        2012-02-01
CVE Names:         CVE-2011-3670 CVE-2012-0442 
=====================================================================

1. Summary:

Updated seamonkey packages that fix two security issues are now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4.

The Red Hat Security Response Team has rated this update as having critical
security impact. Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base scores,
which give detailed severity ratings, are available for each vulnerability
from the CVE links in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS version 4 - i386, ia64, ppc, s390, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop version 4 - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS version 4 - i386, ia64, x86_64

3. Description:

SeaMonkey is an open source web browser, e-mail and newsgroup client, IRC
chat client, and HTML editor.

A flaw was 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-2012-0442)

The same-origin policy in SeaMonkey treated http://example.com and
http://[example.com] as interchangeable. A malicious script could possibly
use this flaw to gain access to sensitive information (such as a client's
IP and user e-mail address, or httpOnly cookies) that may be included in
HTTP proxy error replies, generated in response to invalid URLs using
square brackets. (CVE-2011-3670)

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.

4. Solution:

Before applying this update, make sure all previously-released errata
relevant to your system have been applied.

This update is available via the Red Hat Network. Details on how to
use the Red Hat Network to apply this update are available at
https://access.redhat.com/kb/docs/DOC-11259

5. Bugs fixed (http://bugzilla.redhat.com/):

785085 - CVE-2012-0442 Mozilla: memory safety hazards in 10.0/1.9.2.26 (MFSA 2012-01)
785464 - CVE-2011-3670 Mozilla: Same-origin bypass using IPv6-like hostname syntax (MFSA 2012-02)
