On November 12th, the SeaMonkey Project released a new version of its all-in-one internet suite. SeaMonkey 1.1.13 closes several security vulnerabilities and fixes several smaller problems found in previous versions. With that, SeaMonkey stays at the same level of security as its sibling Firefox 3, which is issuing updates for the same problems this week as well.
“The SeaMonkey team urges users of older SeaMonkey versions, including the SeaMonkey 1.0.x series, which no longer receives security updates, to upgrade. Additionally, the team continues to strongly urge people still using the old Mozilla Suite or Netscape 4, 6 or 7 to upgrade to the new SeaMonkey 1.1.13 version.
All these older software packages suffer from a large and steadily increasing number of security vulnerabilities because they are no longer being maintained. SeaMonkey 1.1.13 is a modern, drop-in replacement, providing the same familiar suite functionality with additional features and fully up to date security.”
SeaMonkey 1.1.13 is available for free download from the open source project’s website at www.seamonkey-project.org. If you are still using this legendary Web browser, I strongly encourage you to upgrade at your earliest convenience. The Internet is getting more and more dangerous as times goes by. Good Day.
