Ubuntu 14.04 LTS / 15.10 : oxide-qt vulnerabilities (USN-2895-1)
Medium Nessus Plugin ID 88861
SynopsisThe remote Ubuntu host is missing a security-related patch.
DescriptionThe DOM implementation in Chromium did not properly restrict frame-attach operations from occurring during or after frame-detach operations. If a user were tricked in to opening a specially crafted website, an attacker could potentially exploit this to bypass same-origin restrictions. (CVE-2016-1623)
An integer underflow was discovered in Brotli. 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-2016-1624).
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.
SolutionUpdate the affected liboxideqtcore0 package.
