Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 15.04 : oxide-qt vulnerabilities (USN-2757-1)

High Nessus Plugin ID 86294


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


Two security issues were discovered in Blink and V8. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit these to bypass same-origin restrictions.
(CVE-2015-1303, CVE-2015-1304).

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.


Update the affected liboxideqtcore0 package.
