seamonkey (SSA:2007-205-02)
Posted on: 07/25/2007 09:34 AM

New SeaMonkey packages are available for Slackware 11.0 and 12.0 to fix possible security issues. While this update has been reported to MozillaZine to "fix several security issues", details are not yet available. Presumably the issues are similar to the ones that were recently addressed in Firefox and Thunderbird.

More details about the issues may (eventually) be found here:
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#seamonkey

Here are the details from the Slackware 12.0 ChangeLog:
+--------------------------+
patches/packages/seamonkey-1.1.3-i486-1_slack12.tgz:
Upgraded to seamonkey-1.1.3. This is presumably a security update, but the details on the net have been sparse. So far nothing has appeared at the
usual URL, but I would treat this as a security update unless it is announced
as otherwise.
For more information (if/when it appears), see:
http://www.mozilla.org/projects/security/known-vulnerabilities.html#seamonkey
(* Security fix *)

Where to find the new packages:
+-----------------------------+

HINT: Getting slow download speeds from ftp.slackware.com?
Give slackware.osuosl.org a try. This is another primary FTP site
for Slackware that can be considerably faster than downloading
from ftp.slackware.com.

Thanks to the friendly folks at the OSU Open Source Lab
(http://osuosl.org) for donating additional FTP and rsync hosting
to the Slackware project! :-)

Also see the "Get Slack" section on http://slackware.com for
additional mirror sites near you.
