Critical Nessus Plugin ID 72851

Synopsis

Description

The remote host is affected by the vulnerability described in GLSA-201403-01 (Chromium, V8: Multiple vulnerabilities)

Multiple vulnerabilities have been discovered in Chromium and V8. Please review the CVE identifiers and release notes referenced below for details.
Impact :

A context-dependent attacker could entice a user to open a specially crafted website or JavaScript program using Chromium or V8, possibly resulting in the execution of arbitrary code with the privileges of the process or a Denial of Service condition. Furthermore, a remote attacker may be able to bypass security restrictions or have other unspecified impact.
Workaround :

Solution

All chromium users should upgrade to the latest version:
# emerge --sync # emerge --ask --oneshot --verbose '>=www-client/chromium-33.0.1750.146' Gentoo has discontinued support for separate V8 package. We recommend that users unmerge V8:
# emerge --unmerge 'dev-lang/v8'
