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.
