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

high Nessus Plugin ID 86294
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


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.
