High Nessus Plugin ID 85240

Synopsis

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

Description

An uninitialized value issue was discovered in ICU. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-1270)

A use-after-free was discovered in the GPU process implementation in Chromium. 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 application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1272)

A use-after-free was discovered in the IndexedDB implementation in Chromium. 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 application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1276)

A use-after-free was discovered in the accessibility implemetation in Chromium. 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 application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1277)

A memory corruption issue was discovered in Skia. 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, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2015-1280)

It was discovered that Blink did not properly determine the V8 context of a microtask in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass Content Security Policy (CSP) restrictions.
(CVE-2015-1281)

Multiple integer overflows were discovered in Expat. 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 application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1283)

It was discovered that Blink did not enforce a page's maximum number of frames in some circumstances, resulting in a use-after-free. 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, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the sandboxed render process. (CVE-2015-1284)

It was discovered that the XSS auditor in Blink did not properly choose a truncation point. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to obtain sensitive information. (CVE-2015-1285)

An issue was discovered in the CSS implementation in Blink. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions.
(CVE-2015-1287)

Multiple security issues were discovered in Chromium. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to read uninitialized memory, cause a denial of service via application crash or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program. (CVE-2015-1289)

A use-after-free was discovered in oxide::qt::URLRequestDelegatedJob in some circumstances. 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 application crash, or execute arbitrary code with the privileges of the user invoking the program.
(CVE-2015-1329)

A crash was discovered in the regular expression implementation in V8 in some circumstances. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to cause a denial of service. (CVE-2015-5605).

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.
