Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 14.10 / 15.04 : oxide-qt vulnerabilities (USN-2652-1)

Medium Nessus Plugin ID 84487

Synopsis

The remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.

Description

It was discovered that Chromium did not properly consider the scheme when determining whether a URL is associated with a WebUI SiteInstance. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass security restrictions. (CVE-2015-1266)

It was discovered that Blink did not properly restrict the creation context during creation of a DOM wrapper. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions. (CVE-2015-1267, CVE-2015-1268)

It was discovered that Chromium did not properly canonicalize DNS hostnames before comparing to HSTS or HPKP preload entries. An attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass intended access restrictions. (CVE-2015-1269).

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 package.
