Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 14.10 / 15.04 : oxide-qt vulnerabilities (USN-2652-1)

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 consider the scheme
when determining whether a URL is associated with a WebUI
SiteInstance. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted
website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass security
restrictions. (CVE-2015-1266)

It was discovered that Blink did not properly restrict the creation
context during creation of a DOM wrapper. If a user were tricked in to
opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially
exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions. (CVE-2015-1267,
CVE-2015-1268)

It was discovered that Chromium did not properly canonicalize DNS
hostnames before comparing to HSTS or HPKP preload entries. An
attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass intended access
restrictions. (CVE-2015-1269).

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.

Risk factor :

Medium / CVSS Base Score : 5.0
