Fedora 19 : v8- (2013-14176)

High Nessus Plugin ID 69357


The remote Fedora host is missing a security update.


This update fixes an issue with Google V8, as used in Google Chrome before 28.0.1500.95, which allows remote attackers to cause a denial of service or possibly have unspecified other impact via vectors that leverage 'type confusion.'

Please note that this issue's impact on Node.js is somewhat lessened since it does not typically execute JavaScript from foreign sources.

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


Update the affected v8 package.
