Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 15.10 / 16.04 LTS : oxide-qt vulnerabilities (USN-2960-1)

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


Synopsis :

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

Description :

An out of bounds write was discovered 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. (CVE-2016-1660)

It was discovered that Blink assumes that a frame which passes
same-origin checks is local in some cases. 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. (CVE-2016-1661)

A use-after-free was discovered in the V8 bindings 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. (CVE-2016-1663)

It was discovered that the JSGenericLowering class in V8 mishandles
comparison operators. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially
crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain
sensitive information. (CVE-2016-1665)

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.
(CVE-2016-1666)

It was discovered that the TreeScope::adoptIfNeeded function in Blink
does not prevent script execution during node-adoption operations. If
a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an
attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same origin
restrictions. (CVE-2016-1667)

It was discovered that the forEachForBinding in the V8 bindings in
Blink uses an improper creation context. If a user were tricked in to
opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially
exploit this to bypass same origin restrictions. (CVE-2016-1668)

A buffer overflow was discovered in V8. 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. (CVE-2016-1669)

A race condition was discovered in ResourceDispatcherHostImpl in
Chromium. An attacker could potentially exploit this to make arbitrary
HTTP requests. (CVE-2016-1670).

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 :
