New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.

Synopsis

The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.

Description

Update to Chromium 69. (EPEL-7 update is blocked by a GCC bug:
1629813, so as soon as devtoolset-8 arrives...)

Fixes a lot of security issues, like every major release of Chromium, including CVE-2018-16087 CVE-2018-16088 CVE-2018-16086CVE-2018-16065 CVE-2018-16066 CVE-2018-16067 CVE-2018-16068 CVE-2018-16069 CVE-2018-16070 CVE-2018-16071 CVE-2018-16072 CVE-2018-16073 CVE-2018-16074 CVE-2018-16075 CVE-2018-16076 CVE-2018-16077 CVE-2018-16078

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.

Solution

Update the affected chromium package.
