Ubuntu 4.10 : epiphany-browser regressions (USN-155-2)

High Nessus Plugin ID 20557


The remote Ubuntu host is missing one or more security-related patches.


USN-155-1 fixed some security vulnerabilities of the Mozilla suite.
Unfortunately this update caused regressions in the Epiphany web browser, which uses parts of the Mozilla browser. The updated packages fix these problems.

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 epiphany-browser and / or epiphany-browser-dev packages.
