Fedora 27 : qutebrowser (2018-35325c9faf)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 111237


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fix CVE-2018-10895 **[0]** and a few minor bugs.

**[0]** : Due to a CSRF vulnerability affecting the `qute://settings`
page, it was possible for websites to modify qutebrowser settings. Via
settings like `editor.command`, this possibly **allowed websites to
execute arbitrary code**.


This version fix compatibility issues with qtwebengine 5.11.x, add
support for page printing, tab muting, third-party cookie blocking and
has the web inspector 'enabled' (does not require
`--enable-webengine-inspector`) by default. It also ships a few
bugfixes and changes.

Note that Tenable Network Security has extracted the preceding
description block directly from the Fedora update system website.
Tenable has attempted to automatically clean and format it as much as
possible without introducing additional issues.


Update the affected qutebrowser package.
