New! Vulnerability Priority Rating (VPR)
Tenable calculates a dynamic VPR for every vulnerability. VPR combines vulnerability information with threat intelligence and machine learning algorithms to predict which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in attacks. Read more about what VPR is and how it's different from CVSS.
VPR Score: 7.4
SynopsisThe remote Gentoo host is missing one or more security-related patches.
DescriptionThe remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201710-14 (WebKitGTK+: Multiple Vulnerabilities)
Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in WebkitGTK+. Please review the references below for details.
A remote attacker could execute arbitrary code, cause a Denial of Service condition, bypass intended memory-read restrictions, conduct a timing side-channel attack to bypass the Same Origin Policy, obtain sensitive information, or spoof the address bar.
There is no known workaround at this time.
SolutionAll WebKitGTK+ users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=net-libs/webkit-gtk-2.16.6' Packages which depend on this library may need to be recompiled. Tools such as revdep-rebuild may assist in identifying some of these packages.
