Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 14.10 : oxide-qt vulnerabilities (USN-2556-1)

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


Synopsis :

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description :

It was discovered that Chromium did not properly handle the
interaction of IPC, the gamepad API and V8. If a user were tricked in
to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially
exploit this to execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user
invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1233)

A buffer overflow was discovered in the GPU service. 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 application
crash. (CVE-2015-1234)

It was discovered that Oxide did not correctly manage the lifetime of
BrowserContext, resulting in a potential use-after-free in some
circumstances. 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 application crash or execute arbitrary code with
the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1317).

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 package.
