High Nessus Plugin ID 77300

Synopsis

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

Description

A use-after-free was discovered in the websockets implementation in Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service via renderer crash. (CVE-2014-3165)

An issue was discovered in the Public Key Pinning implementation in Chromium. An attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2014-3166)

Multiple security issues were discovered in Chromium.

(CVE-2014-3167).

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.

Solution

Update the affected liboxideqtcore0, oxideqt-codecs and / or oxideqt-codecs-extra packages.
