Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple security vulnerabilities were discovered in Chromium. If a
user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an
attacker could potentially exploit these to obtain sensitive
information, cause a denial of service via application crash, or
execute arbitrary code. (CVE-2016-5198, CVE-2016-5200, CVE-2016-5202)

A heap-corruption issue was discovered in FFmpeg. 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. (CVE-2016-5199).

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.
