Red Hat: Updated seamonkey packages fix several security issues

SeaMonkey is an open source web browser, email and newsgroup client, IRC chat client, and HTML editor. Several flaws were 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. A flaw was found in the way SeaMonkey handled malformed JavaScript. A web page containing malicious JavaScript could cause SeaMonkey to access already freed memory, causing SeaMonkey to crash or, potentially, execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user running SeaMonkey. Updated packages are available from ftp.redhat.com.
