Synopsis :

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

Description :

Multiple 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, spoof
application UI by causing the security status API or webview URL to
indicate the wrong values, bypass security restrictions, cause a
denial of service via application crash, or execute arbitrary code.
(CVE-2017-5029, CVE-2017-5030, CVE-2017-5031, CVE-2017-5033,
CVE-2017-5035, CVE-2017-5037, CVE-2017-5040, CVE-2017-5041,

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.

Update the affected liboxideqtcore0 package.
