Ubuntu Security Notice (C) 2015-2016 Canonical, Inc. / NASL script (C) 2015-2016 Tenable Network Security, Inc.


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related
patches.

Description :

A use-after-free bug was discovered in the DOM implementation in
Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted
website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial
of service via renderer crash or execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2015-1209)

It was discovered that V8 did not properly consider frame access
restrictions when throwing exceptions in some circumstances. If a user
were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker
could potentially exploit this to bypass same origin restrictions.
(CVE-2015-1210)

It was discovered that Chromium did not properly restrict the URI
scheme during ServiceWorker registration. If a user were tricked in to
downloading and opening a specially crafted HTML file, an attacker
could potentially exploit this to bypass security restrictions.
(CVE-2015-1211)

Multiple security issues were discovered in Chromium. If a user were
tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could
potentially exploit these to read uninitialized memory, cause a denial
of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the
privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1212).

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Ubuntu security advisory. Tenable
has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as possible
without introducing additional issues.

Solution :

Update the affected liboxideqtcore0, oxideqt-codecs and / or
oxideqt-codecs-extra packages.
