Synopsis
========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been found in SeaMonkey, the worst of
which could result in the arbitrary execution of code.

Background
==========

The SeaMonkey project is a community effort to deliver
production-quality releases of code derived from the application
formerly known as "Mozilla Application Suite".

Affected packages
=================

     -------------------------------------------------------------------
      Package              /     Vulnerable     /            Unaffected
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
   1  www-client/seamonkey        < 2.53.5.1                 >= 2.53.5
   2  www-client/seamonkey-bin
                                <= 2.49.1_rc2               Vulnerable!
     -------------------------------------------------------------------
      NOTE: Certain packages are still vulnerable. Users should migrate
            to another package if one is available or wait for the
            existing packages to be marked stable by their
            architecture maintainers.

Description
===========

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in SeaMonkey. Please
review referenced release notes for more details.

Impact
======

Please review the referenced release notes for details.

Workaround
==========

There is no known workaround at this time.

Resolution
==========

All SeaMonkey users should upgrade to the latest version:

   # emerge --sync
   # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose ">=www-client/seamonkey-2.53.5.1"

Gentoo has discontinued support for the SeaMonkey binary package. We
recommend that users unmerge the SeaMonkey binary package:

  # emerge --unmerge "www-client/seamonkey-bin"

NOTE: The Gentoo developer(s) maintaining the SeaMonkey binary package
have discontinued support at this time. It may be possible that a new
Gentoo developer will update it at a later date. The alternative is
using the standard SeaMonkey package.
